ETHRio Sponsorship Scholars
Sponsor brazilian engineering students of ITA (Aeronautics Institute of Technology), a top-ranked engineering university in Brazil, to attend ETHRio and participate in the hackathon.
This will be a major opportunity for the students to have their first real experience in the blockchain space by developing decentralized solutions and keep BUIDLing afterwards!
I am from the Core-Team of PadawanDAO and was sponsored by Harmony One DAO during ETHDenver, which was a wonderful experience so I can speak by own experience about the impact of attending a major crypto conference and participating in the hackathon. Hence, now one of my goals is to bring this opportunity to as many people as I can to further contribute to the blockchain space and build new decentralized technologies.
$4000 for 10 students, $400 each, which will be distributed as the following:
-$50: 5 hour bus round trip from São Paulo to Rio de Janeiro
-$225: 3-day stay at a hotel
-$80: food expenses for 3 days
-$45: public transportation and uber during the weekend
Metrics for success
