The Ethereum Protocol Fellowship recently completed its fourth successful cohort, culminating with EPF Day at Devconnect in Istanbul. Its completion marks four months of immersive learning, research, and contribution to the Ethereum Core ecosystem by a group of talented and dedicated fellows.

EPF4 statistics

Applications for the fourth group opened on June 2, 2023. After reviewing more than 400 applications, 35 participants were awarded scholarships. In addition, he was given five retroactive benefits for unauthorized participants. During the four-month period, the fellow had the opportunity to collaborate with her 27 core development mentors from various client and research teams within the ecosystem. Their efforts were reported regularly with approximately 600 weekly updates.

EPF4 project

Fellows proposed and contributed to a total of 35 projects, several of which are still active. These projects are not only valuable learning experiences, but also meaningful contributions to the Ethereum ecosystem.


All resources for the program can be found here: EPF4 repository. There you can track all activity within your cohort, check out project resources, development updates, and notes from your peers. Not only is the project his contribution to FOSS, but all the work done within the cohort is completely open and is a real part of Ethereum’s open research and resources.

But it’s not all about work and contribution. One of the key aspects of EPF is the opportunity to meet many inspiring people who participate in core development. During Devconnect in Istanbul, more than half of the group gathered to participate in his EPF Day. This day was a full day of programming. Project presentationpanel discussion and networking time.

Ethereum Protocol Fellowship Study Group

We learned some important feedback at the end of Cohort 4. Despite EPF’s emphasis on protocol development education, the learning curve for aspiring core developers is still very steep. Based on this feedback, we started a pre-EPF program for him. EPF study groupa 10-week deep dive into various aspects of the protocol, providing a collaborative knowledge base for developers. epf.wiki. EPF.wiki has become a place for aspiring core developers to learn about the technical aspects of Ethereum and contribute to the wiki to enhance their knowledge.

Next cohort coming soon™️

As the research group nears its end, we are preparing for the fifth class of Ethereum Protocol Fellowships. Those interested in Ethereum core development should look forward to the application announcement in early May.Join EPF to receive notifications mailing list.

Meanwhile, understand the fundamentals of the Ethereum protocol (the EPF research group is a great place to start) and prepare your application by contributing to open source projects through your GitHub account, especially by contributing to existing projects within the Ethereum ecosystem. can. Then think about what kind of project you want to work on.
