    Everyone,
    
    This is the third of the three proposals we need to make a decision about.
    
    Proposal 3:
    Adopt the following selection criteria for the Diversity Scholarship.
    
    * We will prioritise new W3C participants and established participants 
    who have not previously attended TPAC.
    
    * Where we know which under-represented groups applicants are from, we 
    will prioritise diversity amongst the people to receive assistance.
    
    * We will not use the written quality of applications as a metric, 
    recognising that people find writing difficult for many reasons 
    including it being a foreign language, cognitive disabilities, and 
    reading/literacy difficulties.
    
    * If you support this proposal, please reply to this email with a +1 at 
    the top.
    * If you do not support this proposal, please reply to this email with a 
    -1 at the top.
    * If you do not feel strongly about this proposal, or do not want to 
    participate, please reply to this email with a 0 at the top.
    
    
    You do not have to respond at all, but it really helps if you do. If you 
    would prefer to respond privately, you can send your response to me 
    directly (to lw@tetralogical.com).
    
    Please respond before the end of the day on Friday 8th February 2019.
    
    
    Thank you.
    
    Léonie.
