    Everyone,
    
    We need to make some decisions about the diversity scholarship, if we 
    are to begin promoting it in good time. This is the first of three 
    proposals to consider.
    
    Proposal 1:
    Change the name from Diversity Scholarship to Diversity Fund.
    
    Reason:
    A scholarship is usually associated with education. In this case we are 
    not offering assistance to further someone's education, we're offering 
    assistance to enable more people to participate and bring their 
    knowledge/expertise. Fund is a more accurate reflection of this.

    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.
