After DataCamp Donates completed its fourth calendar year, 95,000 scholarships were delivered to underprivileged individuals and nonprofit admins around the world. Combined with DataCamp Classrooms, over 1 million teachers, students, and people in need have received free Premium DataCamp scholarships. But this isn’t just about big numbers. It also isn't just about access to education. It's about igniting potential, transforming lives, and building a brighter future, one data skill at a time.
Quantitative Analysis of Q4 2023
Over 5,000 scholarships soared through the airwaves of Q4, landing in the eager hands of learners across 65 partner organizations. This wasn't just any quarter—it was a record-shattering whirlwind, marking the largest partnership surge in #DCDonates history. And get this: we also received a flood of applications, breaking our previous record for partnership interest.
But these numbers only tell half the story. What truly inspires us is seeing these scholarships provide the necessary spark to turn potential into progress, with over 91% already being used. We're laser-focused on ensuring every scholarship reaches the right hands, empowering deserving learners who might otherwise be left behind.
Speaking of empowerment, Q4 also witnessed a renewed wave of partnership loyalty. Twenty returning organizations embarked on their second, third, and fourth years with us—a testament to the impact we're making together. Our constant program evolution empowers our partners to help more people more effectively.
A Catalyst for 600+ Tangible Quality-of-Life Improvements
The numbers paint a powerful picture. Driving a 91% adoption rate on our Q4 donations, our partners are doing a fantastic job of picking the most eligible individuals and motivating them to start their data journeys.
But even more gratifying is that #DCDonates learners reported over 600 success stories in Q4 2024 alone, the most in a single quarter. From securing full-time jobs to getting their work published, our scholars are etching their own remarkable success stories, like Bukola, a Wentors scholar from Nigeria:
These success stories refer to professional achievements racked up outside the DataCamp platform. On DataCamp itself, over 200 scholars received associate and professional Certifications last quarter and joined our Certified Community, opening countless doors to potential employers, all for free!

Vision for Q1 2024: Empowering Latin America
Our Q4 2024 partners serve disadvantaged learners worldwide, but here are the countries where most of the 5,000+ new DataCamp Donates Scholars live: Afghanistan, Algeria, Belgium, Brazil, Egypt, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Israel, Malawi, Malaysia, Morocco, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Palestinian Territory, Peru, the Philippines, Switzerland, South Korea, Tunisia, Ukraine, the UK, and the USA.
We're not resting on our laurels. Q1 2024 marks a rejuvenated focus on Latin America, where underprivileged individuals face immense challenges. Since the most popular data and AI coding languages are built on English, people living in Latin American countries, where typically less than a third of the population speak it, need extra support to contribute and thrive in these massive but relatively nascent industries.
That’s one reason why our Product team is hard at work on translating our most popular content into Spanish. We’re also expanding our existing partnerships with LATAM nonprofits and are actively searching for additional established NGOs in the region to partner with. Apply for the Q1 2024 cohort and become a catalyst for change in your community!
