Skills Fund stands out from the rest when it comes to our financing for a multitude of reasons, including our clear-cut financing (our loan calculator displays our rates for all to see), and our students-first mission (we won't partner with schools that don't offer a Return on Education).
Another way we've changed the game is with our unique offering of additional expense financing (a.k.a. cost of living or living expense financing) to help students with extra costs associated with them attending their program. For some schools like diesel mechanic training, the additional expense could be uniforms or tools. For coding bootcamp students, laptops aren't cheap – so their additional expense stipend could be used to cover that cost.
Many schools offer immersive programs, which often demand a large time commitment. If you're attending an immersive program, you might want to use the additional expense funds to cover your living costs – rent, utilities, etc.
