Scholarship Opportunity for Computer Science Students


Recommended Posts

Hello Computer Science students!

I am a community administrator for the company/foundation, Dfinity. We are a startup blockchain cloud computing company working on the very latest of technologies in the areas of distributed ledger technology, consensus algorithms, governance and cloud computing. You can check out our website here for more info: Dfinity.org.

It is a core belief at Dfinity that we continue to develop and expand on our research foundation by supporting students and universities progressing the study of disciplines including distributed computing, cryptography, and decentralized systems, among others.

We have created a scholarship program which we are running for the second straight year in order to support this belief. 

We will be awarding 3 scholarships of $10,000 for active graduate students and 2 scholarships of $2,500 for active undergraduate students.
