NEAR Education Fellowship Programs are designed to engage entrepreneurs, engineers, writers and researchers as well as teachers, designers and more in growing their contribution to the NEAR ecosystem as quickly as possibleExplore
Are you someone who wants to become a Web 3 entrepreneur, developer, writers or researcher but can’t afford the cost of the transition? Are you someone who has fantastic ideas to build on web 3 or write about the future of the web but are not sure where to start? Are you someone who wants to start a career in web 3 but is not sure how?
The NEAR University Fellowship program was initially launched to open new opportunities for people to explore Web3 with NEAR and reduce friction in being fairly compensated for valuable contributions. We happily engaged entrepreneurs, engineers, writers and researchers, teachers, designers, and more in growing their contribution to the NEAR ecosystem.
In the first three months of the program, we received an overwhelming response of almost 1000 applications, and we engaged one out of ten applicants in a 90-day fellowship. While the program has had its challenges, we're delighted with the results and plan to continue on this path.
Over the past months, we have learned many lessons, and more work needs to be done to streamline the program from application to compensation. In addition, we want to ensure the best possible experience for each contributor.
Much more help will be needed from all the incredible contributors in our ecosystem, including you. Stay tuned!
Today we are also announcing that we will take some time to make these changes and prepare for the next wave of this exciting opportunity.
Please be aware that:
If you or anyone you know is interested in joining us for the relaunch of this program later this year, please make sure to apply on this page (at https://near.university/fellows). If you have already completed the form for your application, there is no need to submit it again.
Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

We find joy in making complicated things easier for people to understand and believe in empowerment through continued learning. Our team is made up of technical and non-technical users that love solving problems in creative ways.
Our team is made up of devs and data scientists, artists and adventurers, entrepreneurs and dreamers. We believe that by working together we can provide just about anyone a meaningful learning experience.
We love to see our ideas become reality. In addition to our education work, we are also hard at work on our own technical, creative, and nonprofit projects. We know that the whole point of learning is to be able to do stuff.
NEAR is secure enough to manage high value assets like money, assets and identity while being performant and affordable enough to make things useful for everyday people.
