Check if your hackathon qualifies
Running this semesterWe want to bring back high schooler-led events around the world, so we're only offering this grant for high school hackathons that take place this semester (from August 19th to December 31st, 2022).
This is not an annual program and is only available this semester.
Fully in-personHacking is a social activity, and we're supporting hackathons that bring hackers together IRL. We believe that fully IRL (not hybrid) events allow organisers to maximize the unique hackathon experience for attendees.
Venue securedYou will need to provide a scan of an email, contract, or an MOU with your venue. Your scan should have the date of your hackathon and address, contact details, and the specific commitment of your venue.
Handmade websiteWe believe the best hackathons embody the hacker spirit by building their own website. Complex or simple, beautiful or janky– build your own instead of using nontechnical tools like Wix or Devpost.
You will need to share a link to your website. Don't have a domain? Hack Club Bank provides a free domain. Check out a guide on building hackathon websites or ask in Slack if you need help.
Open sourced financesYou'll receive your grant through Hack Club Bank, our financial platform for hackathons, and spend it in the open with Transparency Mode. Sign up for Hack Club Bank before applying.
If you're unable to use Hack Club Bank , we're unfortunately unable to support you through this grant program.
The bucks start here.
