Hi Joel,

To qualify, you’ll need to have been approved for an individual teacher or classroom organization discount. Apply here.

Then please introduce yourself to the GitHub Education Community at

Finally, contact us to request a swag bag. Include the following info:

  • How many students you teach (So we know the appropriate quantity of material to send)
  • Your mailing address at the school (So we can ensure the package gets to you)

Hi, I have long had applied the discount and I got in my community :slight_smile:

Only missing contact with you, but I think by this route is more than enough

How many Students: 15 Maximum
Your Mailing Address: My address is in the Dominican Republic and mail in this country is not very efficient, it could be a P.O. BOX I have in Miami?

Hi Joel,

Please make the swag bag request using so we can track it. As you can imagine, we’re pretty overwhelmed with requests right now.

Many thanks. :smile:

Chipping in real quick, I applied yesterday early evening and got an email around 2am with t-shirt promo codes and confirmation that my swag bag was under way soon. Pretty efficient! My students will be ecstatic about the goodies and the study material! Awesome idea.

Just received it at school. The box was fubar but the content was safe. And what a content! I have reviewed the swag box contents and it’s just perfect. Small cheat sheets perfect for beginners, the large ones fitted for a wall, the comic, the stickers, the poster, awesome. Thank you very much for that, my new students will LOVE it. Old ones were already asking for the cheat sheets for their start up (they use school grounds for early project phase).

Thank you GitHub team!

I made a new request this morning ;), thanks for your help.

No news yet @sanicki :confused:

Hi Antoine,

I replied to your email the day you sent it. You appear to have registered with us as a student. As I explained, students are ineligible and you will need to reapply for a teacher discount with proof of academic employment. Please respond to my email rather than here.
