Calling all Students, Professors, and participants in the GitLab Education Program: Apply to the GitLab Student Spotlights, have your work featured on, and earn some GitLab Swag!

We want to know: how are you using GitLab for teaching, learning, or research?

GitLab for Education

Since 2018, the GitLab for Education program has been providing free Gold subscriptions and Ultimate licenses to qualifying institutions for the purpose of teaching and learning. In two years, we’ve already provided licenses to over 800 educational institutions worldwide, with a total of 1.6+ million participants!

At GitLab, we believe that Everyone can Contribute - and we want to learn more about how our education communities around the world are contributing to and using GitLab.

What are Student Spotlights?

The Student Spotlights program will highlight amazing projects that students and professors are building and creating using GitLab.

Selected projects will be featured via a video-recorded interview with the students and professors (if available) involved. Interviews and project links will be featured on the GitLab Unfiltered YouTube channel and the GitLab for Education main webpage!

The aim of Student Spotlights is two-fold. By showcasing the great work of our program participants, we want to inspire others to join and share their GitLab projects. Your stories and your work are the best way to share and spread the word!

We also want to connect and build relationships with institutions already using GitLab for teaching and learning. Our student spotlight participants will be some of the first engaged in our quickly growing education community!

Who Qualifies

Students, professors, researchers, and leaders in education using GitLab for Education licenses are eligible to submit projects to the Student Spotlights program.
