A doctoral student in Asia would normally receive
150 to 200 US$ as fellowship that would be minimum
1800US$ to 2400US$/student/year

If we consider 20 OSGeo Scholarships per year that
would work out to be 36000US$ to 48000US$/year

OSGeo could also think of funding small research
projects maybe 5 per year 10000US$/year/project
and that would be 50000US$/year

Perhaps I should have used illustrative instead of
high-quality because that is what I meant.

I do not know how much a graphic/layout artist would
charge to bring out a well illustrated (not too
descriptive) book on OSGeo Software technologies.
May be someone else on the board knows better.
