The University of Malta has launched a €300,000 scholarship fund for students who focus their Master’s dissertation on blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology.

The fund is created by the Malta Information Technology Agency (MITA) and is open to students studying DLT technology from all angles.

The scholarship is part of Malta’s blockchain politic, which intends to transform the island into a global research hub for the technology complete with an licensing regime for companies which operate on DLT.

It is expected that scholarships will motivate students to be involved in a new digital economy, including in the Malta Digital Innovation Authority which will be set up to regulate the sector.
