CeLatam Meet-Up Grants

CeLatam is excited to announce the launch of our Meet-Up Grants Program, designed to empower and expand the Celo community throughout Latin America. We are offering six (06) grants of 500 cUSD each to enthusiastic groups looking to host their web3-themed events on the occasion of the events listed below. Our goal is to support the organization of physical, inclusive, and diverse gatherings that are free of charge for attendees.

These meet-ups should focus on fostering knowledge, collaboration, and growth in the Celo Network and the Web3 space, and be centered around educational and innovative aspects of blockchain technology, excluding trading-focused topics.

Selected grantees are required to provide a post-event report, including event photos, videos, and a report of the activities conducted. Promotional materials and efforts should align with CeLatam’s branding guidelines to ensure consistent brand visibility.

  • 06 grants of 500 cUSD each to be disbursed to one side event per conference;

  • Applicants must be willing to organize a physical event during the period of the conferences listed below, promoting diversity and inclusivity, and being free of charge for participants;
