China’s Tsinghua University Institute of Financial Technology (THUIFR) has partnered with Ripple to launch the Blockchain Technology Research Scholarship Program (BRSP) for Chinese graduate students.
Students who are admitted to the program would be involved in cutting-edge research on global regulations and policies on blockchain technology, and would have opportunities to participate in corporate visits and events. The director, Ivy Gao of International Cooperation and Development, THUIFR said in a remarks
BRSP aims to help students have a comprehensive view of the latest international regulations on blockchain technology, and most importantly, I believe, this program would greatly help with their future research or career in the field of blockchain technology.
Eric van Miltenburg, Ripple’s SVP of global operations, stated also that the program’s goal is to avail students a chance at blockchain research that closely aligns with that of Ripple’s University Blockchain Research Initiative.
San Francisco based blockchain company Ripple has been working round the clock in spreading its global reach, with the firm new partnerships with 13 additional companies, marks a milestone of attaining no less than 200 partnerships across 40 different countries and recently announced that it had a few banks going live with their blockchain solution xRapid, which continues to create a lot of buzz in the community.
