Timeline for Application[edit]

Criteria[edit]

  • Wikimedians must have a record of contribution to Wikimedia projects of no less than 3 months and no less than 500 contributions across all projects. This is meant to ensure we give support to people with some proven commitment.
  • Wikimedians who received support from hardware donation program are not eligible to apply.
  • Wikimedians with a minimum of 500 edits on mainspace as of 1st August 2019 can apply.
  • The support is given in the spirit of significantly improving each individual's capacity to contribute more actively to the best of his ability. So, this is not a contest, reward or entitlement based on past contributions or the potential to contribute more in the future.
  • All Indian language communities receive equal and proportionate support. To promoting diversity and bridging the gender gap, 25% of total laptops and internet stipends will be given to women Wikimedians who meet the rest of the criterion.
  • Only residents of India are eligible to receive support due to auditing requirements.
