SYDTEK Student Ambassador Program

The SYDTEK Student Ambassador Program was created to bring together students from various disciplines from around the globe to come together to build the future.

By applying for this program, we will add you to the list as a Student Ambassador. In developing an environment to prepare students for careers within the industry and entrepreneurship, Student Ambassadors can be promoted to:

  • Full Ambassadors
  • Senior Ambassadors
  • Regional Ambassadors
  • Global Ambassadors

In an attempt to be aligned with the vision of Dr. Gavin Wood to grow the Web3 and Polkadot ecosystem, our goal is to prepare students for life after university and to give them the education and testnet platform to contribute to the future of business and the internet itself.

The Benefits of Becoming a Student Ambassador

Not only are Student Ambassadors entering into the early stages of the Web3 movement, but they will also have access to invite-only webinars with some of the leading thought leaders within the blockchain space. Additionally, SYDTEK will have a number of founders from organizations within the Polkadot ecosystem come to speak with Student Ambassadors and their invitees.

  • Participating in global hackathons with students from around the world
  • Creating course and lecture content
  • Assisting in the early build-out of the testnet platform
  • Contributing to the SYDTEK blog

As we encourage the entrepreneurial mindset, the Student Ambassador program will prepare students for starting their own blockchain companies and provide internship opportunities with organizations within the Polkadot ecosystem.

In addition to the long-term strategic benefits of being a Student Ambassador, additional benefits include:

  • Free swag
  • Mentorship with leaders of the blockchain, business, and software development world
  • A community of like-minded, brilliant, innovative individuals that want to make a positive impact
