Ripple has announced it will partner with Tsinghua University in Chinese and launch a Blockchain Technology Research Scholarship Program (BRSP) for graduate students in China in 2019. The announcement said that the “BRSP will focus on international regulatory policies and the development of blockchain technology”.
Students admitted to the program will be involved in “cutting-edge research on global regulations and policies on blockchain technology” with opportunities to participate in corporate visits and events.
Ivy Gao, Director of International Cooperation and Development, at Tsinghua University said: “BRSP aims to help students have a comprehensive view of the latest international regulations on blockchain technology, and most importantly, I believe, this program would greatly help with their future research or career in the field of blockchain technology.”
Ripple is collaborating with universities around the world to support and accelerate academic research, technical development and innovation in blockchain, cryptocurrency and digital payments. As CNR reported in June, it donated $50 million to 17 universities as part of its University Blockchain Research Initiative.
