4. GitHub Campus Expert form GitHub 🎉
GitHub Campus Experts is a GitHub Education initiative focused on providing leadership and community skills to student leaders on their campuses. A GCE (GitHub Campus Expert) is a student with the ability to improve the technical skills of its community.
📌Note: A GitHub Campus Expert is not a Git or GitHub expert or GitHub ambassador, that’s a common misconception.
Our responsibility as GitHub Campus Experts is to build a strong technical community on our campuses. This can be achieved by running events, hackathons, meetings, workshops, study groups, or any other events where the students can improve their technical skills.
GitHub is always providing tools and content that can help us build a better community and become better leaders, that’s why we constantly have webinars and trainings to improve our technical and soft skills, led by people from the industry but also by Campus Experts (yes, we also share the knowledge amongst us). Another important part of the GCE journey is the events, where GitHub supports us with swag and budget, the devas are always motivated with cool swag and delicious food 😅.
How to become a GCE
Now, I want to tell you a bit about my process of becoming a GCE ✨
To become a GCE you need to fulfill three requirements:
- To be studying at the university.
- To be passionate about community building and technology (I’ll tell you later about my campus community).
- To be at least 1 year away from your graduation.
The first step is the online application. If you have the 3 requirements, you can fill the online application on GitHub’s Education website. in this stage, you will be asked about some basic info related to your community and your motivation to be a GCE.

5. MLH fellowship 🔮
At Major League Hacking (MLH) we know the power of hands-on learning first-hand. Every year, more than 135,000 aspiring technologists around the world participate in MLH events where they learn the skills that help them land jobs, launch startups, and everything in between. You can’t learn these necessary skills in most classrooms, which is why so many people take their education into their own hands and join our community every year.
The MLH Fellowship is a collection of programs designed to make learning these skills easy, fun, and fast. By pairing educational and fun content with practice experience, you can learn a lot in a very short period of time. Whether you’re looking to build out your initial portfolio of personal projects, polish up a project you’re passionate about, or start contributing to Open Source, we have a program for you.
