Hi everybody,

OpenStreetMap US is now accepting scholarship applications for SotM-US in
New York City later this June: http://openstreetmap.us/2015/01/scholarships/

Please do apply. There's no harm in trying. :-)

> Hi everybody,
> OSM US has just announced that 2015's State of the Map US conference will

> http://openstreetmap.us/2014/11/sotmus-2015-in-nyc/
> The United Nations has generously donated the use of their building for
> hosting this conference. As such, the bulk of the conference's expenses
> that is usually earmarked for the venue will now go towards shouldering
> costs for international mappers to attend via travel scholarships. The
> conference organizers are targeting an attendance of 1000 people and they
> want mappers from all over the world to be able to share their experiences
> with OSM in their localities to the other conference attendees.
> You can read more about the plan for SOTM US in this PDF file:

> This is a really great opportunity for Filipino OSM mappers to attend. The
> last time that any Filipino has attended an overseas State of the Map
> conference (whether the international one or a regional version) was at
> SOTM 2011 in Denver, Colorado, which was attended by Maning.
> I personally would want to go to SOTM US 2015. I've been to three
> Wikimanias now but have never attended an overseas SOTM. :-)
