Breaking Barriers
for Every Student

Career changes can be difficult for many reasons. You may not have had the same education opportunities, or you may face unique challenges. We hear you. So we created a scholarship to help break your barriers.

1,000 scholarships, worth up to $500 each, are available to reduce tuition for qualifying courses.*
