انواع بورسیه‌ها

س: "چه نوع بورسیه‌هایی موجود است؟"

A: There is only a single type of scholarship available from the Wikimedia Foundation for Wikimania 2015. Partial scholarships are no longer awarded by the Wikimedia Foundation, but some other Wikimedia organizations might still do so – see Wikimedia organization scholarships.

س: "چرا بورسیه‌های جزیی دیگر توسط بنیاد ویکی‌مدیا اعطا نمیشوند؟"

A: The low acceptance rate of partial scholarships and the overhead in reimbursing them for Wikimania 2013 made it apparent that the funds would be better spent in offering more full scholarships.

س: "آیا بورسیه‌های مربوط به هر کشوری هم عرضه میشود؟"

A: Wikimedia Foundation scholarships can be awarded to a resident of almost any country. Scholarships offered by other Wikimedia organizations are often country specific – see Wikimedia organization scholarships.

شایستگی بورسیه

س: "چه کسی شایسته‌ی دریافت بورسیه‌ی بنیاد ویکی‌مدیا برای حضور در ویکی‌مانیای 2015 است؟"

A: While anyone can apply for a scholarship to attend Wikimania, the most eligible candidates are active contributors to one or more Wikimedia projects, organizations, or initiatives who have a clear interest in Wikimania and the Wikimedia movement. Note however, as the program supports volunteer participation, individuals whose participation is tied to paid work are not eligible for a scholarship. Furthermore, unlike in previous years, individuals who solely contribute to non-Wikimedia free content projects or movements are no longer encouraged to apply, as Wikimedia related activities are now the main basis for evaluation.

س: "آیا هیچ محدودیت سنی وجود دارد؟"

A: No, anyone is welcome to apply. However, if a child applicant is offered a scholarship, the consent of their parent(s) or guardian(s) will be required before it is awarded. For this process, a child is defined as someone below the age of eighteen years when their application is submitted.

س: "آیا درخواست کنندگان باید با هرگونه مرحله یا شرایطی قبل از ارایه‌ی درخواست موافق باشند؟"

ج: بله، آنها در پایین فرم درخواست هستند - تمام شرایط و مراحل باید بررسی شوند پیش از آنکه فرم درخواست ارایه شود.

س: "چرا درخواست کنندگان باید با یک سری از مرحله‌ها و شرایط قبل از ارایه‌ی درخواستشان موافق باشند؟"

A: To ensure that they understand what they will be expected to do and what they will be required to pay for if they receive a scholarship.

Q: Do applicants have to sign-up to a privacy agreement before submitting an application?

A: Yes, this agreement is located on the bottom of the application form – all applications must indicate their consent to the agreement by entering their full name in the appropriate box. Applicants below the age of eighteen years (see above) must also have their legal parent or guardian enter their full name in a separate box.

Q: Why do applicants have to consent to a privacy agreement before submitting their application?

A: For legal reasons and to ensure applicants understand what will happen to the data they submit.

Q: If an applicant has received a scholarship or travel grant to attend a previous Wikimania, are they eligible to receive one for Wikimania 2015 as well?

A: Yes, except for any 2014 scholarship recipients who failed to complete a post-conference report. Furthermore, previous recipients will be asked to answer an additional question on their 2015 application.

Q: If I can afford to travel to and attend Wikimania, should I apply?

A: Scholarship recipients are not selected based on financial need, as such factors cannot be assessed by WMF staff or the Scholarship Committee when reviewing applications. However, it is asked that applicants carefully consider their financial need against the needs of other applicants from all over the world. Many applicants do not have the financial means to attend Wikimania without this opportunity.

نوشتن درخواست بورسیه

س: "آیا درخواست کنندگان متعدد میتوانند یک درخواست مشترک ارایه دهند؟"

A: No, every applicant must submit their own application to be considered.

س: "آیا درخواست کنندگان باید به زبان انگلیسی درخواست کنند؟"

A: No, but it is strongly recommended that they are, as English is the only language that all members of the Scholarship Committee can understand. In the event that an application is submitted in a language other than English, translation attempts will be made, but this may require the use of computer translators which do not always provide accurate translations. Note that as part of the Phase 1 selection criteria, applicants must provide evidence of English language abilities that are at a level that would enable them to participate in Wikimania, which is primarily conducted in English, and submitting an application in English is an effective way of fulfilling this requirement.

س: "آیا از درخواست کنندگان انتظار میرود که به تمام پرسش‌های فرم درخواست پاسخ دهند؟"

A: Yes, except when not applicable or relevant to the applicant. If an applicant fails to make a reasonable effort to answer the questions, their application will likely fail the Phase 1 selection criteria.

س: "چرا فرم درخواست یک سری از اطلاعات شخصی را میپرسد؟"

A: To assist in the distribution of scholarships and for the purposes of diversity monitoring. Note that recipients will be selected based only on factors described in the selection process.

س: "چه نا‌های کاربری در پروژه ویکی‌مدیا را درخواست کنندگان باید در فرم درخواستشان ثبت کنند؟"

A: All usernames that have been used by the applicant for contributing to Wikimedia projects. If a username is shared with someone else, this should be noted on the application. Unused accounts need not be listed. In any case, there is no obligation for applicants to list all accounts they own or use for editing.

س: "آیا درخواست کنندگان میتوانند لینک‌هایی به صفحه‌هایی در دیگر وب‌سایت‌ها به عنوان مدرک برای پاسخ‌هایشان ارایه دهند؟"

A: Yes, this is encouraged, especially for answering the enrichment related questions. However, links to on-wiki or off-wiki sites should be associated with clear descriptions of the applicant's involvement and contribution. Reviewers will consider all relevant information available to them when reviewing applications.

س: "چه مقدار از درخواست کنندگان انتظار میرود که موقع پاسخ دادن به پرسش‌ها بنویسند؟"

A: Enough to give reviewers a clear picture of the applicant – guidance on what to write is provided with the Phase 2 selection criteria. The appropriate length for an answer varies from applicant-to-applicant depending on what they have to show. For most applicants, between three and five normal sized paragraphs per question answer will be sufficient. Reviewers do not expect to receive a dissertation, but overly short answers will usually fail to support the application clearly enough.

Q: Can well known/established users skip the questions asking about their participation in Wikimedia projects?

A: No. Having more contributions should normally mean providing longer answers, not shorter answers or no answers at all. On grounds of fairness, all applicants are expected to make a reasonable effort to answer the questions as per the Phase 1 selection criteria.

س: "آیا درخواست کنندگان میتوانند درخواستشان را پس از ارایه تغییر دهند؟"

A: Unfortunately not. It is recommended that applicants draft their application carefully and ensure they say everything they need to say before submission. However, additional information can be submitted by applicants to wikimania-scholarships@wikimedia.org where a member of the Scholarship Committee or Wikimedia Foundation staff will note the new information on the user's application. Please do not submit an application twice; this creates a lot of additional work for reviewers.

Scholarship value and reimbursement process

Q: What does a Wikimedia Foundation scholarship pay for?

A: A Wikimedia Foundation scholarship will cover the cost of an individual's round-trip travel as arranged by the Wikimedia Foundation travel agency, shared accommodation for up to 6 nights as arranged by the Wikimedia Foundation, the conference registration fee, and the shuttle service to and from the hotel and conference venue. Note that most meals during the conference are covered by the conference registration fee, such as lunches and receptions.

Q: What expenses are not covered by a Wikimedia Foundation scholarship?

A: Expenses that are not covered include any incidental costs (new passport, travel guides, plug adapters, clothes, etc.), local transportation during the conference (except airport transfers), meals outside of the conference venue, costs related to being accompanied by families and friends, and all expenses associated with any vacation taken outside of the conference dates of 15–19 July. Please note that during the conference, some meals are provided. The Wikimedia Foundation will not normally cover the cost of obtaining a visa (see Travel) – exceptions may be made upon request.

س: "بنیاد ویکی‌مدیا چگونه هزینه‌های دریافت‌کنندگان بورسیه را پرداخت خواد کرد؟ برای آنها پول میفرستد؟به آنها بازپرداخت میکند؟"

A: The Wikimedia Foundation will pay directly for conference registration fees, travel, and shared accommodation. For the booking of transport, applicants are required to use a travel booking service contracted by the Wikimedia Foundation. For transportation to and from the airport (in both their home country and in Mexico), WMF will reimburse scholarship recipients via Western Union, once recipients turn in their relevant receipts.

Q: Can Wikimedia Foundation scholarship recipients book their own travel arrangements and ask for reimbursement?

A: No, as a condition of submitting an application all applicants must agree to use the travel booking service provided by the Wikimedia Foundation.

س: "چه زمانی من باید برای ویکی‌مانیا نام نویسی کنم؟"

ج: افرادی که بورسیه دریافت میکنند کد مخصوصی را برای ثبت نام در همایش دریافت خواهند کرد. تمام انتخابات نهایی برای بورسیه‌های بنیاد ویکی‌مدیا باید در اواسط آوریل اعلام شود (Important dates را ببینید؛ آن صفحه در طول مراسم بروزرسانی خواهد شد). توصیه نمیشود که درخواست‌کنندگان تا زمانی که انتخاب نهایی درباره‌ی درخواستشان کرده‌اند، ثبت نام کنند.

س: "آیا بنیاد ویکی‌مدیا کمکی برای ویزا خواهد کرد؟

A: An invitation letter for all scholarship recipients requiring a visa to attend the conference will be provided (see Travel). We expect each recipient to contact their local Mexican consulate or embassy on their own or through a visa service and pay any fees. If paying the visa fee is a hardship, the Foundation will cover this expense.

بورسیه‌های نهاد ویکی‌مدیا

س: "آیا درخواست کنندگان علاقه‌مند به هم بورسیه‌های بنیاد ویکی‌مدیا و هم بورسیه‌های نهادی دیگر از ویکی‌مدیا نیاز به دو بار درخواست دارند؟"

A: It varies. Some Wikimedia organizations will be using the applications for Wikimedia Foundation scholarships to select their recipients; in these cases, additional applications directly to the Wikimedia organization will not be necessary. However, other Wikimedia organizations require separate applications. See Scholarships#Wikimedia organizations scholarships for more information.

س: "اگر نهادی از ویکی‌مدیا فرم درخواست جدای خود را داشته باشد، آخرین مهلت برای درخواست کی است؟"

See Scholarships Wikimedia organizations scholarships for more detail.

س: "نهادهای ویکی‌مدیا چگونه انتخاب میکنند که چه کسی بورسیه‌ی آنها را دریافت کند؟"

A: Final decisions on successful applications are usually made by the organization themselves. If an organization is using applications for Wikimedia Foundation scholarships (see above), they may take the reviews completed by WMF staff and the Scholarship Committee as a starting point. The organizations which do not use these applications will carry out their own review and selection process independently of both the Scholarship Committee and the Wikimedia Foundation.

س: "چگونه بورسیه‌های دیگر نهادهای ویکی‌مدیا با بورسیه‌های بنیاد ویکی‌مدیا تفاوت دارد؟"
