Eskwelabs believes that “Talent is everywhere, but opportunity is not.” So let’s bridge that gap!

While many people were impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic, we know that there are still career shifters and career upskillers who would want to get a data analytics skills education. The existence of scholarship opportunities—like this one for the Data Analytics Bootcamp—is one way we can make more opportunities available for the talent that is out there.

About the Pay-It-Forward Scholarship

We are offering a "Pay-It-Forward" full-ride scholarship for the Data Analytics Bootcamp Cohort 5. The scholarship will cover the full cost of the tuition worth P28,000.

Why is it called the “Pay-It-Forward” Scholarship?

No, we don't ask you to pay back the tuition financially once you graduate. Rather we ask you to help pay forward the goodwill of receiving this scholarship to the broader Eskwelabs community. Scholarship recipients are asked to become ambassadors for Eskwelabs in virtual learning communities to promote and teach data literacy to others who may not be able to afford a formal data education, and inspire as many as possible with mindsets to keep on learning and growing.

Who is a good candidate for this scholarship?

  • You have demonstrated a track record of academic commitment through achieving a high score on the Eskwelabs Data Analytics entrance exam.
  • You are a good fit to become an ambassador to the broader Eskwelabs community.*
  • You are in a position where the cost of the program is a significant financial burden.

*Applicants will be invited for an interview with our Education team to see if they are a good fit for the role.
