The WAC Scholarship is an 8-week scholarship program called WAC (Web3 for Arts and Culture) that teaches eight established arts and culture institutions how to integrate Web3 technologies.

Inspired by the new use cases identified during the program, the eight rewards will go beyond drops and collectibles to create open source proofs of concepts on the Tezos blockchain. We will be on site via web3 interaction, NFT-Ticketing, tokenomics for a curation-DAO, Web3 integration into virtual rooms and much more. Anyone can submit contributions, no prior technical knowledge is required. The Fellows will announce the rewards to the Gitcoin community in an online event on May 25 at 14:00 UTC.
