The wait is over! Applications to the GitHub Campus Experts Program are now open
GitHub Education is on a mission to build communities and support emerging tech talent around the world. How? We’re looking for the next batch of technical student leaders to apply to the GitHub Campus Experts Program!
GitHub Campus Experts are student leaders building diverse and inclusive spaces on their campus that join with like-minded folks to learn or build projects together. They foster communities on their campus and help other students learn valuable industry skills, secure opportunities, and better prepare themselves to become the next generation of software developers.
If you’re a student growing your campus community or starting from scratch, the GitHub Campus Experts Program has everything you need to engage your community and create valuable events for your campus. As a Campus Expert, you’ll have access to GitHub Campus Experts training, resources, and support to excel in the activities you organize on your campus. You’ll also get opportunities to attend GitHub’s first-party events and join a global community of student leaders.
To qualify for the GitHub Campus Experts program, you must meet the following eligibility requirements:
- Be at least 18 years of age.
- Validate your student status through the GitHub Student Developer Pack.
- Be enrolled in a post-secondary formal education institution.
- Be a GitHub user for at least six months.
The application consists of two sections: first, an application form that will give you a chance to spotlight challenges and opportunities in your community. If selected, you’ll move onto the second section of the application, the video resume, which will allow us to get to know you better. We’re looking for students to share challenges, opportunities, and ways to build a strong on-campus community for developers. Don’t worry-using your phone or computer is more than enough!
If you’re passionate about diversity and inclusion, as well as eager to help build your community and learn new skills, then grab your GitHub Student Developer Pack and apply to become a GitHub Campus Expert. Applications will remain open until February 28, 2021. What are you waiting for? Apply today!
