Applicants must develop a proof of concept (PoC) using distributed ledger technologies (blockchain). Financial services and supply chain management have become the obvious domains for applications of DLT. As an applicant, you are invited to research further and select any other industry, ecosystem, or business process in which application of DLT has not yet been well-elaborated. Students are free to apply in teams of up to 5 people, or as a lone participant. The requirements of the scholarship are the same in both cases, but as a team can distribute work among members, teams must also submit the roles of each member. In the case of a team winning, the reward will be given to the team as a whole. From the time of this announcement, “applicant” can mean a lone participant or a team.
