Participantes de outras iniciativas colaborativas e educacionais; de livre conhecimento e software, também são bem-vindos. Consulte FAQ para mais informações sobre critérios de participação.

Processo de seleção

Todas as incrições para bolsas da Wikimedia Foundation serão avaliadas pelo Scholarship Committee. O número de candidatos que irão receber as bolsas será alocado entre as diferentes regiões do mundo, a seguir:

Distribuição regional
Ásia Pacífico 30%
Leste da Europa e Ásia Central 10%
Norte/Oeste/Sul da Europa 10%
África do Norte e Oeste da Ásia 10%
África subsaariana 10%
América do Norte 10%
América Central e América do Sul 20%

O Comitê de bolsas reserva-se no direito de cometer desvios em relação às referências acima, caso falte candidatos qualificados. Uma lista dos países separados por região está disponível no /Regions.

Enquanto aplicações são categorizadas por região durante o processo de revisão, um processo de avaliação padronizada será aplicado a todos os aplicativos, independentemente da origem. Este processo envolve três fases de avaliação:

  • Fase 1: todos os pedidos serão analisados por três ou mais revisores, com cada independente dando uma pontuação de zero (falha) ou um (pass) em uma base por aplicativo usando o phase one selection criteria. Todas as aplicações que são passadas por três ou mais revisores vão passar a primeira fase; aplicativos que são passados por revisores dois ou menos falharão a primeira fase e não devem ser dada consideração adicional na fase dois. Todos os candidatos serão notificados por e-mail sobre se seu aplicativo passou ou falhou uma vez concluída esta fase de revisão.
  • Fase 2: todos os aplicativos restantes serão analisados mais detalhadamente por um mínimo de três revisores cada. Cada revisor independente irá rever e marcar o aplicativo contra os phase two selection criteria, a fim de dar a cada aplicação um escore total.
  • Fase 3: o Comitê da bolsa, em estreita colaboração com a Fundação Wikimedia, irá determinar o orçamento total disponível e como esta será distribuída para cada região, com as estimativas feitas em quanto dinheiro um destinatário específico exigirá (por exemplo, alguém atendente da Wikimania 2014 da África do Sul vai exigir mais recursos do que alguém presente, da França). Aplicativos serão classificados usando duas pontuações de fase em uma base de região por região; aqueles que receberem as maiores pontuações em cada região, por padrão, serão os beneficiários das bolsas de estudo. Em caso de resultados idênticos ou muito semelhantes entre os candidatos, aqueles que ' não ' anteriormente recebeu uma bolsa de estudos serão favorecidos sobre aqueles que têm, e aqueles que receberam uma bolsa de estudos há muitos anos serão favorecidos sobre aqueles que receberam nos últimos anos. Mais ajustes entre aplicações de pontuação alta também podem ser feitas para garantir uma distribuição justa entre os países em cada região.

Após a conclusão da fase 3, uma decisão será emitida por e-mail a todos os candidatos restantes quanto à sua aplicação ter sido bem sucedida ou se foi recusada. Aqueles com aplicações bem sucedidas são dadas a oportunidade de confirmar a sua participação na Wikimania 2014 e a sua aceitação da bolsa premiada. Um pequeno número de candidatos será colocado na lista de espera; esses aplicativos podem ser adjudicados a uma bolsa de estudos em uma data posterior, dependendo da taxa de aceitação de candidatos aprovados, e se a utilização dos recursos pelos bolsistas são tão estimados.

Critérios de seleção

Fase 1

Aplicativos falharam a primeira fase do processo de revisão se qualquer dos seguintes critérios de falha se aplicam:

  1. A aplicação total ou principalmente consiste de conteúdo que é off-topic ou abusivo.
  2. O requerente tenha deixado de fazer um esforço razoável para responder as perguntas no formulário de candidatura.
  3. O requerente não conseguiu demonstrar qualquer contribuição significativa ou atividades que podem merecer a concessão de uma bolsa de estudos.
  4. O requerente não forneceu evidências, como parte do aplicativo em si, ou em outro lugar, de habilidades de língua inglesa que estão em um nível que permita a sua participação na Wikimania, uma conferência que é realizada principalmente em inglês.

Aplicativos para os quais aplicam-se sem critérios de falha são dados mais controles na fase dois.

Fase 2

Critérios de seleção para a fase 2
Number-1 (green).png Activity within Wikimedia projects, affiliate organisations or initiatives (50%)
Number-2 (green).png Activity in other free knowledge, free software, collaborative or educational initiatives (20%)
Number-3 (green).png Interest in Wikimania and the Wikimedia movement (30%)

During phase two, applicants will be assessed against the three dimensions listed below, with each applicant being awarded a score on a scale of zero to ten for each criterion. While descriptions are only provided for even numbered scores, odd numbered scores may also be awarded when an applicant is judged to fall between two descriptions. These scores are then averaged and weighted to give an applicant's total score.

Activity within Wikimedia projects, affiliate organisations or initiatives (50% of total score)

Activity within Wikimedia projects, affiliate organisations such as chapters or initiatives indicates that an applicant will add value to Wikimania through the experiences and knowledge they have gained from contributing. Examples of online activities include writing articles, uploading images and dealing with vandalism. Examples of offline activities include participating in GLAM events, involvement in the campus ambassador programme and attending meetups. Applicants are encouraged to write about both their online and offline experiences within their application.

0 = Not a participant, with no involvement in any Wikimedia project, affiliate organisations or initiative.
2 = Very low level participant, with very occasional involvement; no notable impact on any Wikimedia projects, affiliate organisations or initiatives.
4 = Low level participant, with occasional involvement; a small and narrow overall impact on Wikimedia projects, affiliate organisations and initiatives.
6 = Mid level participant, with continued involvement; a moderate overall impact on Wikimedia projects, affiliate organisations and initiatives.
8 = High level participant, with dedication; a high and diverse overall impact on Wikimedia projects, affiliate organisations and initiatives.
10 = Very high level participant, with exceptional dedication; a very high and very diverse overall impact on Wikimedia projects, affiliate organisations and initiatives.

Activity in other free knowledge, free software, collaborative or educational initiatives (20% of total score)

Activity in other free knowledge, free software, collaborative or educational initiatives outside the Wikimedia movement, indicates that an applicant will add value to Wikimania by bringing new relevant experiences, knowledge and innovations to the conference. Relevant initiatives are those that either have a general educational value or are relevant to the free culture movement, or both. Examples include ICT4D, Moodle, OpenStreetMap, Project Gutenberg and the Creative Commons organisation. A project does not have to follow or support the Wikimedia Foundation's definition of free content to be considered relevant. Applicants are encouraged to write about both their online and offline experiences within relevant initiatives, and to explain how participation in Wikimania by the applicant could bring benefits either to the initiatives or the Wikimedia movement, or both.

0 = Not a participant, with no involvement in any other free knowledge, free software, collaborative or educational initiative.
2 = Very low level participant, with very occasional involvement; no notable impact on any free knowledge, free software, collaborative or educational initiatives.
4 = Low level participant, with occasional involvement; a small and narrow overall impact on other free knowledge, free software, collaborative or educational initiatives.
6 = Mid level participant, with continued involvement; a moderate overall impact on other free knowledge, free software, collaborative or educational initiatives.
8 = High level participant, with dedication; a high and diverse overall impact on other free knowledge, free software, collaborative or educational initiatives.
10 = Very high level participant, with exceptional dedication; a very high and very diverse overall impact on other free knowledge, free software, collaborative or educational initiatives.

Interest in Wikimania and the Wikimedia movement (30% of total score)

Interest in Wikimania and the Wikimedia movement indicates that an applicant will be able to make a significant contribution to Wikimania and get the most out of any scholarship awarded to them. Applicants are encouraged to write about why Wikimania is of interest to them, how they intend to participate in the conference (including any submissions), and what they expect to take away from it all – whether that be at a personal level or for the benefit of the Wikimedia and the free culture movement. It should be noted that answers will be critically analysed during the review process – claims that are modest and realistic will gain more credit than those that are unrealistic or clearly exaggerated.

0 = No expressed interest in the Wikimedia movement; no relevant explanations as to why the applicant is interested in attending Wikimania.
2 = No clear interest in the Wikimedia movement; non-thoughtful or generic explanations as to why the applicant is interested in attending Wikimania.
4 = Limited interest in the Wikimedia movement; vague or likely unrealistic explanations as to why the applicant is interested in attending Wikimania.
6 = Moderate interest in the Wikimedia movement; some developed and moderately realistic explanations as to why the applicant is interested in attending Wikimania.
8 = Strong interest in the Wikimedia movement; many developed and likely realistic explanations as to why the applicant is interested in attending Wikimania.
10 = Very strong interest in the Wikimedia movement; many exceptionally well developed and clearly realistic explanations as to why the applicant is interested in attending Wikimania.

I taught math for 33 years. My students kept me feeling young, and reminded me how much I love my country.

When I retired, my son was worried I would get rusty. So he introduced me to Wikipedia. He explained that anyone can contribute, and showed me how.

Since then, I've created articles on quadratic functions, probability, charts, graphs and more. I've made 7,000 edits in all.

I write in Tamil: my favorite language and my mother tongue, spoken by 85 million people across the world. I've also uploaded more than 6,000 audio files to Wiktionary, demonstrating proper pronunciations for common Tamil words. Now, more people can share in this beautiful language.

As a teacher and a mother, I was always busy. But now that I'm retired and my children are grown, my time is my own — all 24 hours of it! And I spend every day on Wikipedia.

I'm a volunteer. No one pays me. But helping edit Wikipedia has become my life's work. Even though I'm not in the classroom, I'm still doing what I care about most: helping a new generation of students learn, in the language I love.

Today, there is a gap between the developing world and the developed world. It's not about money, and it's not about power. It's about knowledge.

If you follow the news, you probably remember reading about the Arab Spring. For young people like me and my friends, it was the beginning of a new era. As momentous events happened, we were obsessed with the news, following up second by second. We were checking our phones, Facebook, Twitter.

And I was writing on Wikipedia. I love Wikipedia because it's impartial; it's the best source for up-to-date information from a neutral point of view. I looked at CNN, Al Jazeera and the BBC, searching for the most reliable sources. Then I added updates in real time.

It's incredible. Everyone could know what was happening, as it happened. We could share the truth with people across the world.

We want a world that is more open, more educated, and more free. We want a world where knowledge is available to anyone that seeks it.

It's time for us to change our world. Will you help?

My wife and I have a friendly competition. You see, my wife speaks Zulu, I speak Xitsonga, and our children are going to have a tough time choosing which language to use.

As you can imagine, each of us hopes our children will choose our own language. But I have a secret weapon: Wikipedia.

I believe a language should be able to break the cyber barrier. If it's not on the internet, it's a dying language. By contributing to Xitsonga Wikipedia, I help keep my language alive.

In the 1900s, a Swiss missionary began cataloging the culture and artifacts of the Xitsonga-speaking people. His two-volume book is now in the public domain. I am translating this text into Xitsonga, supplemented with my own knowledge.

Every language is part of the human feeling. All the languages that have ever been in the world, they define us as humans. When a language dies, it takes something with it.

Whether my children choose my language or my wife’s language, the important thing is that they have the choice. And as long as we keep our languages alive through Wikipedia, they will.
