Devcon(nect) Scholars Program

Devcon and Devconnect are events that act as centers of gravity in the Ethereum ecosystem. They are global gatherings that create space and time for community. Places and moments to share, learn, discuss, meet, explore, and live in.

Physical events are always somewhere in a new city, country, or region. That means no matter where a Devcon(nect) is held it will always be difficult for folks living elsewhere.

Sometimes human flourishing happens just by showing up. As organizers of Devcon and Devconnect, we can at least create that opportunity for a small group each year. The devcon(nect) scholars program supports travel, room & board, a ticket to devcon, and special programming.

For Artificers

All scholars are responsible for creating a learning artifact: a little something that captures the impact attending Devcon or Devconnect had. Artifacts are usually created with words, images, and code in some combination. It could be a lesson learned, a new project, or just reflections -- the value of the artifact is in the act of creating it and sharing with others.
