Wikimedia Diversity Conference 2017
I have had a partial scholarship acceptance in Wikipedia Diversity conference 2017 in Stockholm, Sweden. This scholarship covers meal and accommodation but it does not include the flight ticket from Dhaka, Bangladesh to Stockholm, Sweden. I would like to apply for a scholarship to cover my flight ticket.

I am working as Community director in Wikimedia Bangladesh with special focus on Gender Gap. I got partial scholarship to participate in the Wikimedia Diversity Conference, 2017. I will be sharing my experience about mainstreaming Gender issues in Bengali wikipedia, which is mainly dominated by male editors; there are very few female/ other groups' editors. Therefore the voice of diverse group is absent in Bangla Wikipedia. As I am working for reducing Gender Gap, I am trying to engage female and other group editors in Wikimedia movement. This diversity conference will allow me to meet other community's wikipedians and talk about the issue of Gender. Again my attained knowledge in this conference will be an asset for my community to take further Gender action.


I would like to apply for a scholarship that will cover my round trip from Dhaka, Bangladesh to Stockholm, Sweden. I have been awarded a partial scholarship, accommodation and meal are already included in the scholarship.
