Oi pessoal,

Abriram as bolsas para ir ao SOTM deste ano.

O Brasil não está na lista dos países prioritários, mas nos últimos dois
anos temos conseguido.

O Arlindo, Claudomiro e eu já fomos, se alguém precisar de ajuda para a
aplicação, nos avise.

Subject: [OSM-talk] Scholarship program to State of the Map 2011
To: "talk em openstreetmap.org" <talk em openstreetmap.org>

  The State of the Map Committee is excited to announce a program to cover
full travel and accommodations costs for mappers to attend State of the Map
2011 in Denver, Colorado (United States). We’re seeking nominations from the
community for potential mappers.

We are seeking people from places where costs would prohibit attendance,
developing countries, and places that are “interesting” geopolitically. The
ideal candidates for funding are from countries with a small OSM community,
perhaps just a few mappers in total. They have made a significant start at
mapping their city, either through imagery or with their own GPS, and are
directly familiar with the process of OSM. They may have started
communicating among themselves, and made plans and scoped out the process
for their local district. But, the community is nowhere near critical mass,
and they need the inspiration and support to take OSM to the next level.

We need to act fast! State of the Map is just over 3 and a half months away,
tickets and visas need to be arranged. In order to allow enough time for all
the arrangements, the nomination period will be short, and *ending at
Sunday, June 25th*. The number of scholarships rewarded will be based on the
success of fund-raising. From the nominations received, we’ll review and
invite scholars in late June.

Please send your nominations to *scholarship em stateofthemap.org*. For each
nomination, include the mappers name, OSM user name, email address,
location, and a paragraph or two on why they’d be great to have at SOTM.
Self nominations are accepted.

Please forward this message to other relevant local OSM and mapping lists
and social media!

As for regions, here are a few regions that seem to fit the bill, but
nominations are not limited to these places at all.

   - Eastern and Southern Europe: Belarus, Kosovo, Bulgaria
   - Arab States: Tunisia, Bahrain, Jordan
   - Asia: Nepal, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Indonesia
   - Latin America: Argentina, Bolivia, Guatemala
   - Africa: Liberia, Ivory Coast, Swaziland


In previous years there has been a scholarship program to help mappers who
wouldn’t otherwise be able to attend get to State of the Map. This year we
are announces an “Sponsor-A-Mapper” program. There are plenty of deserving
individuals from all of the world that can’t afford to attend SotM. To help
them be able to come join the community in person in Denver why don’t you
consider paying to cover a portion of the cost of their ticket?

We are attempting to raise an average of $2,500 USD per mapper in order to
be sure to cover their costs. This will vary slightly by transportation
costs depending from where the select scholarships are traveling.

The more money we raise the more mappers we can sponsor!

To Sponsor-a-Mapper please email *scholarship em stateofthemap.org*

Thank you!
