How can I make money with Shorts?
According to the director of global partnership enablement for YouTube Shorts, Amy Singer. a Budget of $100 million is the “first step in our journey to build a long-term monetization model for Shorts on YouTube”. Singer also said that this fund is “top priority for us”, and it will “take us some time to get it right.”
So anyone who creates YouTube Shorts can be a part of the fund, not just content creators who are YouTube Partners. You will only be required to create original content and follow community guidelines put there by YouTube. YouTube will also approaching “thousands of creators whose Shorts received the most engagement and views to reward them for their contributions.”
