Polygon is pleased to announce the launch of its inaugural Polygon Fellowship: Class of 2022. Devised in conjunction with DevFolio, the program has been carefully curated to help provide successful applicants with education, funding, mentorship, and support with a wide range of aspects related to the rapidly evolving Web3 industry.
The fellowship is set to occur across eight weeks, during which a total of 50 developers with varying technical skills will attend workshops and masterclasses to help them build Web3 technologies from scratch. The fellowship aligns with Polygon’s broader goal of onboarding millions of developers to Web3 and bringing the technology into the mainstream.
Seeking to encourage more talent to the world of Web3, the fellowship will start in India — targeting the country’s 5.8 million-strong developer community, before expanding to other regions of the world.
Successful applicants will be provided with expert support and mentorship to empower them with the skills needed to develop decentralized applications (dApps) on the Polygon blockchain. Upon culmination of the program, each project will be reviewed and tested to assess its general utility and long-term viability.
As part of the experience, fellows will be placed into small groups alongside some key mentors, who will help provide them with a foundational base about all things Web3. Mentors will assist the applicants by providing them with detailed instructions about building their own projects and utilizing their creativity to build the future of Web3.
Fellows in the beginner group will receive $1,500 each to realize their ideas, while those selected for ‘Web3 Builder Track’ will receive $3,000 — with each investment being dedicated towards resources and building purposes.
During the final two weeks of the course, both groups will attend the Polygon Hacker House in Bangalore to present their ideas and demos to the group.
The beginner program runs from June 13th until August 7th. The builder program starts on July 4th and runs until August 28th.
