Welcome to the DataCamp Donates Digest for Q3 2022, the best way to see the inspiring work of our partner organizations from July through September of this year.

That’s right—it’s been two years since we started partnering with nonprofit organizations to give 1-year DataCamp scholarships to disadvantaged aspiring data professionals worldwide. In that time, 50,000 individuals have received free, world-class data education through DataCamp Donates. What started as a response to the unemployment crisis brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic has transformed into a cutting-edge scholarship opportunity on which lower-income communities can rely.

We received the most applications to DataCamp Donates in one quarter, besting Q2’s figures by 29%. 44 partners joined our ranks in Q3, the most organizations in a single quarter. With their help, over 4,000 scholarships will be given to individuals in up to 35 countries. We are elated to welcome back nine returning partner organizations whose communities saw such great results with DataCamp the first time around, they decided to partner with us again to further democratize data science education.

#DCDonates Snapshots

Onto the success stories!  In case you missed them, here are some videos our team put together celebrating the life-changing successes some of our DataCamp Donates learners have earned, such as Amanda Wade, who got a Data Analyst job at Google:

In this next video, we thank our almost 14,000 learners in Africa who received scholarships through our partners at Ingressive For Good. You all embody the values of optimism, community, and hard work that make DataCamp Donates so special. Thank you!

We love it when DataCamp Donates partners and learners share their experiences on social media using the hashtag #DCDonates. We especially enjoyed this one from a young man from Malaysia who nailed his job interview and has DataCamp and Selangor Human Resource Centre to thank for it.

A massive shout-out to the six DataCamp Donates learners who were among the winners of DataCamp’s first-ever XP competition in August. They won a combined total of $4,000 USD, including the grand champion of the competition, Sani Usman. Those cash prizes will really go a long way in the lower-income countries in which they live. We were even more excited to see I4G learner Augustina Okonkwo follow up on her win by getting her Associate Data Scientist Certification on DataCamp.

We’re committed to providing only the best services to our DataCamp Donates learners to help them get ahead but hold them to the same rigorous standards all of our Certified users' experience.
