About the Summit

The Wiki Student Summit 2024 is a national gathering of students, educators, and Wikimedia enthusiasts. The theme for this year’s summit is “Beyond Borders: Collaborating for Positive Change”. We aim to foster collaboration and innovation among students from different parts of the world, encouraging them to contribute to Wikimedia projects and use them as tools for education and empowerment.

Scholarship Categories

We understand that not everyone has the resources to attend the summit, and we believe that financial constraints should not be a barrier to participation. Therefore, we are offering two categories of scholarships:

  1. Full Funded: This scholarship covers transport to and from the event, meals during and after the event, accommodation during the event, and registration to the event.
  2. Partial Funded: This scholarship covers transport to and from the event, meals during the event, and registration to the event.

How to Apply

To apply for a scholarship, you will need to fill out the Scholarship Application . The form includes sections on your personal information, involvement with Wikimedia, and your understanding of the event theme. Each scholarship category has specific questions to understand your needs better.
