Wikimania Scholarships app

Jump to navigation Jump to search


The Wikimania Scholarships app is web-based application used to accept and process scholarship requests for Wikimania attendance. This application has historically been developed, maintained and hosted exclusively by volunteers from the community (Manuel Schneider, on a WMCH server). Starting with Wikimania 2014 the application will be hosted on the Wikimedia Foundation servers.

This project aims to review and update the existing application to the security and reliability standards required by being co-located with Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects.
