Ripple continues to expand its collaboration with universities in Asia with its latest blockchain research program at China’s Tsinghua University.
This Blockchain Technology Research Scholarship Program (BRSP) scholarship will only be available to graduates in 2019. It is principally aimed at the development of blockchain tech and international regulatory policies and will give participating students the opportunity to work on global policies related to blockchain technology.
San Francisco-based Ripple is gaining a global reputation for its graduate programs. In 2018, the company put USD 50 million into another Asian initiative, this time in South Korea. The University Blockchain Research Initiative there included 17 universities across the country.
Regarding its latest graduate initiative, Ripple’s SVP of Global Operations, Eric van Miltenburg, was impressed with the university’s forward-thinking approach to bringing the country’s youth into DLT. He said:
“The program’s goal – to provide students with opportunities in blockchain research – closely aligns with that of Ripple’s University Blockchain Research Initiative; we’re thrilled to support Tsinghua University in this endeavor and look forward to its launch.”
The university’s response to the latest research initiative was one of encouragement for students to go forward in the industry by becoming skilled in the latest international relations and rules surrounding the industry.
