Toronto — 9-12 November 2023
Scholarship applications are now closed.
Scholarships will be reviewed in batches. Please apply as early as possible to increase your chance of securing a scholarship.
- Early scholarship deadline (Batch 1): July 31
- Final scholarship deadline (Batch 2): August 31
You must live in North America to be eligible for the scholarship.
We offer two types of scholarships:
- Full scholarship (accommodation and travel cost)
- Partial scholarship (accommodation or travel cost)
You may also select "I am applying for a full scholarship, but would be able to attend if awarded a partial scholarship."
You will be asked a number of questions on your contributions to the Wikimedia movement from which your application will be assessed by the scholarship committee.
Scholarship applicants will be notified of their outcome after the scholarship committee evaluates their application. For those that have been successful, we will then be in further contact about booking accommodation and travel arrangement.
Registration fee and lunches on conference days are included for all scholarship recipients. Meals on pre-conference days and breakfasts/dinners on conference days are not covered. We also do not cover visa cost nor local travel cost from the place of your residence/hotel to airport, train and bus station (or vice versa). Other incidentals or sundry costs are not covered.
Scholarship recipients that include accommodation will stay at Holiday Inn Toronto Downtown Centre. To accommodate as many scholarships as possible, scholarship recipients are expected to share a room with two beds with another scholarship recipient. Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis.
