Around world, there are lots of students/academicians deeply feel lack of support and need motivation while working on their projects and researches.
HOPR is a great and well organized project. If HOPR starts a scholarship for students there will be applications from all over world. prerequisities can be decided for the sake of project. Foundation, team, advisors and community can work in cooperation and give funds to students from a specific area and age(universities,informatics students/academicians,etc). HOPR team and foundation can choose projects and people who will contribute to project.
applications can be accepted for a specific duration and winners can be announced on a specific date. maybe every year on HOPR mainnet date. All aplications can be assesed by team and foundation can make the final selection and announcement. As an alternative team can select candidates and community can vote.
this scholarship can be funded by foundation/team each year from the specific percentage of pool income. 10k for a person*5 maybe.
