Is this only available for those in the EU. Can you apply if you live in the United States?

Hi Joseph, thanks for getting in touch. Because of the limits on our budget the amount we could provide would only make sense for those within Europe to avail of. However, there are travel bursaries also available to attend Coolest Projects North America for those involved in Dojos there who wish to travel to California for the event.
