[Temperature Check] Seeking a grant for U-Hack: A hackathon organized by students, for top university students worldwide

U-Hack has the aim to unite, unleash & unlock the potential of the brightest minds of the next generation. The focus of the hackathon will be advancing the borders of DeFi to broaden adoption, and will take place between Feb 10th to March 14th. There will be a $100k prize pool for participating students.

Throughout the hackathon, weekly events will be held to bolster knowledge. On weekends, top protocols will be joining us to talk about challenges they’ve overcome & dive into their unique mechanics. Subsequently, fireside chats will be held with participants about the future of blockchain & crypto. On top of this, VC mentoring will be regularly available with the goal to enhance project viability in the real world.

The end goal of U-hack is to foster as many viable projects as possible to reality. All submissions will be circled through a network of VCs & accelerators for maximum exposure.

Becoming a sponsor of U-Hack will give access to the brightest minds of the next generation and with that - potential founders of significant projects in the future. Sponsors of U-Hack can get close to participants through weekly mentoring sessions, where they can provide them with feedback & influence their projects & give them a competitive edge in the real world.

Welcome to the forum, brother.

If you’d like to move this Temperature Check to AIP so the voters can make a decision, feel free to do so anytime. However, you will need to reformat your proposal, in particular, including a Specification section that describes what actions the Aura DAO will need to take in detail if the AIP is approved. Guidance can be found here: [Aura Finance] Proposal Rules and Guidelines

There doesn’t seem to be much community engagement or support for this topic, however, so it might be in your best interest to try and garner a bit more organic support on this before moving it directly to vote.
