Binance Announces Fellowship Program
Financially limited students can apply for funding to boost their education and potentially work in the blockchain industry.
Global cryptocurrency exchange Binance sponsors a scholarship program to enable students to develop their skills, knowledge, and experience, without the financial barriers.
Posted at Binance Charity page and shared via Twitter by Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ), the new scholarship will focus on improving education that will empower the next generation of blockchain experts. The blog notes that in addition to financial support for tuition, books, and other fees, Binance will offer scholars the opportunity to gain exposure to the Binance blockchain ecosystem.
How it works
First, the eligibility criteria are based on a per institution basis. Applicants should carefully review the requirements of the institution they wish to apply to and if any fees are incurred during the school application process, Binance scholarship applicants may request a refund under the scholarship if they are accepted.
Applicants should be academically inclined and demonstrate a keen interest in blockchain technology. Finally, they must demonstrate, with evidence, the financial barriers that prevent them from accessing education.
Potential applicants can view participating universities here. Note that at this time the list appears to be under construction.
Scholarships will be available for vocational education (currently for 1,000 Ukrainian students), for undergraduate studies and for master’s degrees.
There is no limit to the number of institutions you can apply to, but choose carefully and give yourself plenty of time to put together a well-thought-out application package. Be aware that incomplete applications or applications with missing documents will hamper your chances. Of course, references are always encouraged and can help.
