To apply to the Data Science or the Data Engineering programs, you’ll need to possess these requirements:

  • A master’s degree or PhD completed before the beginning of the program, or a PhD that will be completed within 3 months of finishing the program, or a Bachelor’s degree with extensive data-related work experience
  • Some prior programming experience
  • A foundational knowledge of statistics for Data Science or computer science for Data Engineering
  • Proficiency in the English language

If you’ve got all that, then you’re eligible to apply for the Data Science or the Data Engineering program.

To put it plainly, yes. We require all applicants to be familiar with at least one programming language to apply. The Data Science and the Data Engineering program application also requires applicants to take a coding challenge before getting accepted into the program.

While the programs emphasize Python, many of our applicants have experience with other languages, and have varying degrees of coding experience.

  • For our Data Science applicants, they usually have a strong background in probability, statistics, and experience with programming, scripting, or statistical packages.
    • We’ve had successful applicants with degrees in political science, economics, computer science, mathematics, physics, chemistry and more.
  • For our Data Engineering applicants, they should have a strong background in computer science, software development, and experience with programming.
  • Data Science Essentials is meant for students who are looking to learn essential data science skills, who may be new to Python and are looking for a more robust learning program, those interested in learning the fundamentals of quantitative analysis or who are looking to apply to the Data Science Fellowship.

To attend any of our programs, tuition is $10,000.

For those paying in cash for the Data Science or the Data Engineering programs, we offer two discount options:

  • $2,000 for those who apply during our early admissions time frame
  • $1,000 for those who apply during our regular admissions time frame


Financing is available through Ascent or other lenders of your choice.

We also offer income sharing, where you don’t pay anything for tuition until you start your career and are earning over a certain threshold. Income sharing is an agreement between you, The Data Incubator, and our partner, Leif. Check out the details under the question “What is income sharing?”

If you’re placed with one of our hiring partners after your training, we’ll refund 50% of your tuition*.

A limited number of scholarships are available for the full-time data science and engineering programs. Check out the details under the question “Do you offer scholarships?” to learn more.

We encourage you to put your best foot forward during your application for a chance to earn one of these coveted scholarships.

*Participants who use Ascent or Income Sharing Agreements to finance their participation are not eligible for the 50% placement refund.

You bet your spreadsheets we do! There are scholarships for all of our programs.

Data Science or Data Engineering Program

We proudly offer a small number of full-tuition scholarships for these two programs. These tuition-free spots are only available for the full-time program. All applicants will be considered for the scholarship and we will select individuals we believe to be the most highly qualified.

Great question.

Income sharing is an agreement between you, The Data Incubator, and our partner, Leif. You attend the program with the understanding that you’ll pay back your tuition after you’ve completed the program and have a job where you’re earning at least $40,000 per year.

This way, you don’t have to worry about paying your tuition until after you’re working. And we’ll provide you with all the support you need to land a role in the data world.

Income sharing is currently only available to individuals with a US Social Security number.

If you decide to participate in income sharing, your monthly payments will will begin after you complete the program and begin your job, and will be based on a percentage of your income.

If you have more questions about income sharing, contact Leif at 646-760-3318, or email them directly at
