Basic information about the Eskwelabs Alumni Referral Program for Data Science Fellowship Fellows
What is the Eskwelabs Alumni Referral Program?This is an esk-clusive referral program that we provide to our Data Science Fellowship Alumni. The Referral Program will send you a referral bonus of P2,000 for every friend that is admitted and enrolled to become an Eskwelabs Data Science Fellow.
What’s the background history?We previously did a test to see if we want to launch a larger referral program, and the Alum Referral Program is a part of that. We already noticed that many successful Fellows are referred to by previous alumni. So as a part of our mission to increase access to data science learning opportunities the Eskwelabs Referral Program encourages and rewards people for spreading awareness of the Data Science Fellowship, starting with our alums.
Technical information about the referral program
Who is eligible for the Referral Program?Currently, we are only making this available to Data Science and Data Analytics graduates (our alumni!) as referrers. However, anyone can be a referee. In order to count towards the referral bonus, the referee must be accepted and enroll in a data science cohort and was previously not a part of any paid Eskwelabs program. The referral must be made at the time of admission, and not after enrolment.
Please note: In the small chance that your friend receives a competitive full-ride scholarship, no referral bonus is applied.
Participating in the referral program
How do I participate in the Referral Program?Only Eskwelabs Alums can give referrals right now. In order to participate in the Referral Program simply ask the candidate to go through the regular admission process. Inform them to sign up for Cohort 8 via the “apply now” button, and you can also encourage them to start with the Aral-Aral prep-course.
At the interview stage, we will ask them a standardized question,“Are you referred by any Eskwelabs alum?” Please note, we will reach out to you for recommendations and to understand how you know them i.e., through work, school, or socially and your assessment on their readiness.
How many friends can I refer?We have no limit on the number of people you can refer.
How will I get the referral bonus?Our Admissions Team will reach out to you for your bank details. Your referral bonus will be transferred to your account once your friend completes the program.
The referrer and the referee
Can I see more details about the current status of the friends I have referred to apply for the Fellowship?If you'd like to know more about your friend's status, we encourage you to reach out to them directly and support them in the application process. Let’s cheer them on!
Remember to ask them to mention your name during the interview stage. You may also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if they have questions about the Fellowship?As an alum, you don't need to answer all their questions. The Eskwelabs team is organizing informative events where they can attend and know more about the admissions process. We will post these public events in our social media.
You can also share the Program Primer with your friend. They can also book a 1-on-1 chat with us via Google Meet.
