I don't have a passport. Can I apply for the scholarship?--Iqsrb722 (talk) 06:23, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

@Iqsrb722: If you are a legal resident of Canada, then you need no passport to attend the conference and are welcome to apply for a scholarship. If not, then you will need to be able to get the required travel documents (including a passport), but the scholarship does not cover any attendent cost.  ­– Coren(talk) 01:28, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Wikimania Esino Lario 2016?[edit source]

On https://scholarships.wikimedia.org/apply is an application for Wikimania 2016, not 2017... --Lingveno (talk) 23:49, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Looks like it's not updated for some languages (specifically en-gb). Looking into fixing this. Ajraddatz (talk) 01:56, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
I corrected it on translatewiki. Best, DerHexer (talk) 13:59, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Wiki-text in application?[edit source]

The application form uses plain-text boxes but some questions require us to provide links. Are we allowed to use wikitext? Deryck Chan (talk) 12:52, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

@Deryck Chan: Wikitext links will not be turned into clickable links for the jury. In order to make their lifes easier, direct external links are preferred. Best, DerHexer (talk) 15:19, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
