PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC, 25 April 2007
Applications are now being accepted until May 18 for technical training scholarships for community based wireless networks for the first workshop of the TRICALCAR project that will be held in Huaral, Peru from July 16 to 21, 2007.
A rigorous selection process will allow 28 participants to be awarded during this first of three regional workshops. For this first workshop we expect to receive applications from Colombia, Peru, Venezuela and Bolivia, which will be awarded with a scholarship that will cover travel expenses (air tickets, visas, airport taxes, transportation), meals and accommodation throughout the days of the workshop.
This project seeks to strengthen the emerging network of local community-based wireless champions, one which ensures both adequate geographical and gender representation, for this reason applications from women will be especially welcomed. We invite all those interested in applying to this call to read further information regarding this call, and to submit their application.
Workshops organized as part of the TRICALCAR project are open only to participants from Latin America.
