I got this message from github.

Sorry.

Your application has not been successful this time. Thank you for applying, and for being a part of the GitHub Education community.

When can I reapply for campus expert program.
Also, please let me know what are the criteria to get selected as a GitHub campus expert.
Our institute is new and we want to get indulge in open source so that we can build together.

They will start accepting new applications by the end of January. Even my application was rejected. They said that they start accepting new applications in the beginning of new semesters.

Thank you for your reply.
