Outreach to Brazilian universities and other groups to spread awareness of Wikimedia projects sounds like a generally great idea! The idea seems to be very broadly scoped, and although we understand there is a general need to spread movement awareness in Brazil outside of Sao Paulo and Rio, we appreciate that Brazil is a huge country and would suggest adding some more focus in terms of any specific educational projects you plan to encourage, and more information about how you would organize a big national outreach campaign like this (would a few volunteers travel? would the fellow organize local volunteers in each region?). We would also like to see more clearly defined outcomes for outreach activities (if, for example, a fellow is funded for a year to organize national outreach and this results in 10 new Wikipedia editors, is this considered a success, or should there be an expectation to achieve more than this?). Finally, the fellowships program would be curious to hear about how this might connect with other initiatives in Brazil (the education program?).
We don't have any open slots for new fellowship projects right now, but if you are still interested in developing this idea further, please do submit an application to the fellowship program for consideration during the next open call. Thanks! Siko Bouterse (WMF) (talk) 04:56, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
- Thanks for the feedback, I left the broadest possible for the community throughout the program point out what would be the focus. But I undestand to approve a fellowship requires a sharper focus. And it came as a solution to increase the educational program, but I increase the quality of the text. Thank you again. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 15:30, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
