About the Pay-It-Forward Scholarship

We are offering a "Pay-It-Forward" full-ride scholarship for the Data Analytics Bootcamp Cohort 7. The scholarship will cover the full cost of the tuition. See the tuition fee and payment methods here.

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.
