Your application to attend the 2016 Wikimedia Hackathon in Jerusalem

Thank you for applying to attend the 2016 Wikimedia Hackathon in Jerusalem. We received more applications this year than ever before, and despite the high qualifications of the applicants, we could not accept many of them. We are sorry to inform you that your scholarship application for this year's Wikimedia Hackathon has been denied.
Approval is based on the following factors:
- The applicant is an active Wikimedia volunteer developer
- The applicant had not been sponsored in the past
- The applicant has well-thought-out plan to contribute
There are several options for you now:
- Participate without a scholarship (please let us know if you do, and re-register).
- Apply to participate in the upcoming Wikimania Hackathon in Esino Lario https://wikimania2016.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page
- Find a sponsor (your employer, your local Wikimedia chapter, or someone else) to cover your costs.
There will be more Wikimedia developer events in the future, and we hope to hear from you again in the future.
Hackathon 2016 organizers,
