Our scholarship program is oversubscribed and we are keen to ensure the available funds are used to maximize the number of participants and ensure diversity in participation. Please tell us what level of scholarship you are applying for and why you should be selected. You do not have to give a talk or host a workshop in order to get a scholarship, but it may help if you do.
What level of grant/scholarship are you applying for? *
Are you seeking funding for your attendance at SotM from any other sources?
(Example: Wikimedia, EOF, etc.)
How will attending State of the Map benefit you and OpenStreetMap. *
Please describe your involvement in OSM and how will attending State of the Map benefit you, your local mapping community and the wider OpenStreetMap project. Be specific and focus on yourself - we want to hear about your contributions not a groups work (tip: use "I" not "we"). (1500 characters maximum)
Your answer
Please check all that apply and feel free to elaborate in other questions: *
We are especially excited to hear from first time attendees of a State of the Map conference, those without easy access to OpenStreetMap learning communities, women and under represented communities, or if you have an exciting local story to share with us.
Are you also interested in attending the HOT Summit with support?
This year, the HOT Summit will immediately precede SOTM on Sept. 19th & 20th. Recipients of SOTM Scholarships are also able to attend the HOT Summit with free admission and accommodations/supplementary support commiserate to their SOTM Scholarhip level. Please see: for more information.
Anything else we should know?
Let us know if you have any questions or requests for additional assistance. You do NOT need to request support for Visas as some level of this is already included (but do let us know if you think the visa process will be more complex for your country).
