Why a NEAR Ambassador Program?

The Goal

Build a melting pot of innovation on your campus by building awareness and connecting with your peers and professors.

Technical and non-technical students and professors can join the movement to build the future of the Open Web.

The Problem

The best ideas and innovations always come from universities. Our opinion is that these ideas are not getting enough funding to emerge from labs and dorm room debates.

This program gives you the power to promote the ideas and projects that inspire you.

The Solution


Hand pick capable, ambitious and empathetic students and faculty on your campus.


Build a community of the best and brightest by organizing events, contests and other ways to engage the community.


NurtureSupport them with access to experts and the funding they need to explore the future of the Open Web.

Why You?

Are someone who:

  • believes in controlling your own identity, money and records of ownership?
  • wants to start earning while studying in university?
  • is interested in launching a career in blockchain and working with the next generation of Internet technologies?
  • wants to launch your own startup and is looking for funding?
  • wants to be acknowledged as a global leader and community builder?
  • wants to lead the global youth movement to build the future of the Internet?
  • wants to work with some of the best and brightest ICPC gold medalists on the planet?
