The RChain Cooperative offers scholarships to members who might not otherwise be able to attend RCon3. Scholarship awards are based on the appropriateness of the opportunity afforded by the conference related to the applicant's professional background, primary interest in attending the conference, proposed outcome of attending, and financial need.
Please complete the following application to be considered for scholarship funding to attend RCon3, RChain's conference for developers, to be held Sept. 5 and 6, 2018 in Berlin.
The deadline for scholarship application submissions was July 20, 2018. People who submitted applications and met the eligibility requirements each received 100% funding (registration, travel, and lodging) to attend RCon3. After making these awards, there was still money available in the scholarship fund. The RChain scholarship committee is pleased to announce another opportunity for people to submit applications for scholarships!
Round two of the scholarship application period runs July 20 - Aug. 6, 2018. Scholarship award amounts may be different than awards previously distributed depending on the number of applications received and money available in the scholarship fund.
The deadline for submissions for round two is Aug. 6, 2018
Why did the application deadline change?
The first application deadline was July 20, 2018. At that time all eligible applicants received 100% funding (registration, travel, and lodging) to attend RCon3. After making these awards, there was still money available in the scholarship fund. The RChain scholarship committee recommended offering a second opportunity for people to submit applications to assure as much of the scholarship fund as possible will be used.
Will all eligible applicants receive 100% funding during round two?
Not necessarily. Round one applicants did because of the number of applications received by the deadline and the value of the scholarship fund. The amount of individual rewards for eligible applicants in round two may vary, and depending on the number of eligible applications received not all applicants may receive scholarships. Please see "What is the process for awarding scholarship funds?" below for more details.
