This is a community programme. We want it to be as inclusive and transparent as possible, and we are applying this thought to our sponsorship and donation process as well.
Companies and individuals in the Ethereum development space can contribute to the Community Blockstars Programme by donating to the Community Fund. B9lab will match the seats sponsored by the community, the goal is to have 500 developers in each of the two programmes planned for 2019.

Community contributors can give as little or as much as they wish and in DAI.
Each 999 DAI received in the fund means one additional student can be admitted to the programme. Moreover another one will be granted and sponsored by B9lab.
The funds are paid into a multisig wallet, and payouts to B9lab have to be approved by two independent community keyholders.
70% of each seat funded will be paid out in advance, and the other 30% after the B9lab team have graded all exam submissions at the end of the programme.
You can contribute in USD, EUR, GBP or CAD. Please let us know here.
You can donate in DAI using the address below.
