Students can use the free credit to deploy any cloud hosting package for their projects on DigitalOcean. Any student who is 13+ and enrolled in a degree or diploma-granting course of study can sign up.
If you’re a student and want to get this deal, just follow the steps below:
- Visit Github Student Developer Pack and create a new account using your school-issued email address (.edu at the end of the address).
- Then wait for a response from GitHub. It usually takes about one business day for them to review and approve your request.
- Once you're approved, GitHub will send you an email with some promotional codes of the tools inside the Student Developer Pack program, of course, including the $50 promo code of Digital Ocean.
- Create a new account at DigitalOcean, then use that code, and you will have $50 in Digitalocean Credit.
Note that the offer is only valid for new clients at DigitalOcean, and if you’re not a student, this will not work for you. But don't be sad, here's another deal that will help you get free $100 credit on DigitalOcean, no .EDU email is required.
I wish you succeed :).
