In order to minimize as many barriers as possible when it comes to living in poverty, accepted students received a full tuition scholarship, a laptop, a coworking space membership, a student stipend, and a student success representative to help students navigate barriers and hurdles they faced during the program.
To help inform these decisions, we asked our students two things during the screening process: - Will you require any services for the program? Transportation? Childcare or babysitting services? Anything at all that would help you complete the program? - What are some challenges that you might have throughout the duration of the program? How can we help address and solve them?
