Skills Fund: The Hakuna to your Matata.

We've teamed up with Evolve Security Academy to offer tuition and cost of living financing for the full-time Cybersecurity Program. Students may borrow from $2,000 up to $13,000, over the course of 3- or 5-year loans. For Evolve Security Academy, the loan is Interest-Only, which means that students make interest-only payments while in the program and for two months following program tuition. After that time, students begin making full (interest+principal) repayments.
