On his Tumblr today, former Vimeo co-founder Zach Klein took a break from his summer project building what looks like an off-the-grid cabin in the woods to announce a scholarship opportunity Peter Thiel would be proud of. To promote the value of peer-to-peer education, as opposed to that no good very bad institutionalized kind of book learning, Mr. Klein is offering $1,000 (total, not per person, sorry). Until the funds run out–or August 19th, whichever comes first–anyone who signs up for a class at Skillshare, where Mr. Klein notes he led the seed investment round through Founder’s Collective, can be reimbursed up to $20 worth of the ticket price. All you have to do is email your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I’m certain that this investment will eventually pay dividends back to me in the form of a wider community of teachers and students for me to learn with and from,” writes Mr. Klein. Oh yeah, and that $20? He’ll be sending it to you via Venmo, which happens to be another Founder Collective investment. Haven’t downloaded the app yet? Well now you have a reason to!
