Budget breakdown[edit]

  • 2-4 scholarships for wikipedians-in-residence 20000 DKK ~ 4000 USD

Sum 4000 USD

Project scope[edit]

Two GLAM institutions in Denmark plan to have wikipedians-in-residence in 2011/2012, but such positions are not salaried, so many capable potential candidates will not apply.

We would like to have a broader set of potential residents. A scholarship could open the positions to people in ordinary jobs.

Project goal[edit]

The goal of this project is to enable a wider recruitment.

Non-financial requirements[edit]

There are no significant non-financial requirements, but we are in a process of learning and sharing our experiences.

Fit to strategy[edit]

The project will help develop the cooperation with the GLAM sector, and allow us to expand this cooperation in the future.

Other benefits[edit]

This project allows us to take advantage of some timely opportunities for cooperation with the GLAM sector.

Measures of success[edit]

We will consider this project a success if we attract at least one applicant for a wikipedian-in-residence position, who is not a student and does not have alternate funding.
