In addition to applying for these scholarships, grants and discounts, there are also lots of ways to fund your program. Many of our participants have found it useful to create a crowdfunding page on GoFundMe, for instance. Others have also saved money by subletting their apartment on Airbnb while they did the program. If you have any additional questions about how you might be able to fund your program, don’t hesitate to reach out to our Admissions team in your interview process, as they will be able to guide you in the direction of applying for resources that may apply to you.
