Fellowship Program


yAcademy fellowships are not introductory programs to software auditing. They are trial-by-fire programs where you will audit pre- or in-production codebases, and the stakes are very high.

  • You will be auditing alongside our resident and guest auditors.

  • You will be expected to participate and add value to the discussions.

  • You will be expected to be fluent at setting up test environments, and run toolings.

  • You are not required to have had experience in auditing or coding in the Web3 space, but you must be proficient in software engineering generally (hence, Web2 developers are welcome to apply)

  • The time commitment is >=20 hours per week.

If you think this program is advanced for you, fear not, you can still join after going through an introductory program such as Secureum. If you prefer to fly solo, you can bootstrap yourself and hunt for bounties on Immunefi. Then, come back and apply, we would love to boost your progress to an advanced level.

How long is the program?

1 month, covering 2-4 codebases.

What is a typical week in the fellowship program?

  • The auditing sprint starts on Monday with an overview session delivered by one of our resident auditors, a guest auditor, or the codebase author.
  • During the week, async discussion take place between fellows, mentors, guest auditors, residents, and codebase devs.
  • Fellows work in groups during the week. Groups may meet during the week over calls.
  • At the end of the week (or second week for larger codebases), fellows present their findings and receive feedback from our residents, mentors, and codebase authors.
  • The auditing sprint ends with a retreat session where we invite a prominent guest for a lecture or AMA with the fellows.

If you think you are a good fit for the program (yay!), please apply:
