National Archives Wiki Scholars Registration

Course details

Participants who meet our requirements will engage in the virtual course over 12 weeks, starting the first week of June 2019. Participants meet weekly to improve Wikipedia’s coverage of women’s suffrage.

The $1,500 cost of this opportunity covers collaborative group sessions with peers, access to hands-on support from Wikipedia experts, and technical training so you can successfully contribute to Wikipedia. We encourage you to seek professional development funds to cover the cost of your tuition. We’re happy to work with you to provide your department or organization more information about the course.

Participants are awarded a shareable, electronic certificate issued by the National Archives and Wiki Education upon course completion. For testimonials, visit our landing page.
