The Need

The proposed Web Monetization standard has been implemented as a browser extension demonstrating the incredible possibilities of Web Monetization as a new revenue model for developers and creators on the web. But the long term goal for any web standard is always native browser implementation. To achieve this, we need talented and enthusiastic engineers to build, experiment, and develop the components required to make Web Monetization a standard part of the web platform

The Solution

Grant for the Web's Technical Scholarship Program pairs independent engineers conducting essential Web Monetization research with browser companies and projects. Technical Scholars are paid by Grant for the Web and work in contractual partnership with the host organization. Each placement has a custom duration, cost, and work scope.

Qualifications

  • Experience working in Chromium (Edge, Chrome, Brave, Samsung Internet), WebKit (Safari) or any other browser engine.
  • Experience contributing to open sources projects
  • Deep interest in web payments
  • Experience in self-directed research
  • Experience with the Interledger Protocol and/or the proposed Web Monetization standard is not required but is a bonus
