About Cryptocurrency PhD Scholarship Fund
We’re excited to announce our new Cryptocurrency PhD Scholarship Fund, which will enable companies and individuals to donate cryptocurrency to fund PhD students in the areas of blockchain, cybersecurity, and data analytics. The Crowd-sourced Fund uses a Web 3.0 payment system developed by us and project partners Nelnet International to enable real-time, peer-to-peer payments on both Bitcoin and Ethereum blockchains. As the fund is built, a series of projects will be announced which students can apply for while significant donors of cryptocurrency will have named PhD Scholarships in their areas of interest.
Curtin University Cryptocurrency PhD Scholarship Fund
Curtin University Associate Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research Excellence Professor Garry Allison said the scholarship fund was a great opportunity for investors in cryptocurrencies to help nurture a new crop of PhD graduates who can further develop these new technologies in the future.
“Further work is required to identify and develop those applications that are best suited to the attributes of blockchain and Curtin University is responding to this by establishing the Cryptocurrency PhD Fund.”
Eligibility & How to Apply for Cryptocurrency PhD Scholarship Fund
The Cryptocurrency PhD Scholarship Fund will enable peer-to-peer payments from donors to Curtin University with both Bitcoin and Ethereum. Centrality will also make its Web 3.0 platform and developer toolkits available for students and researchers. This will enable the Curtin community to use real-world software to build decentralised applications that leverage the latest technology, like Industry 4.0.
Centrality Group General Manager Jerome Faury said the fund would have a significant impact on both workforces and blockchain research.
“As cutting edge technology like Web 3.0 and Industry 4.0 rapidly evolves, the agreement with Curtin will ensure that graduates are able to use up-to-the-minute skills to contribute to a future which focuses on digital equality and putting consumers back in control of their data,” Mr Faury said.
“These graduates won’t just research technology, they’ll contribute positively to building a more equitable digital economy.”
Curtin is working with payment platform provider Nelnet International to offer a seamless experience to those contributing to the fund.
Nelnet International Managing Director David Heffernan said Nelnet International was excited to be partnering with Curtin and Centrality, to deliver blockchain-specific applications.
