At Skills Fund, we're on a mission to connect as many students as possible with funding for an education that will help them change their life. Student lending can sometimes be smoke-and-mirrors - and that's not fair to any student. We want you to be completely informed during every step of the process, because this is about your future. We've created a step-by-step guide to exactly what happens when you apply for Skills Fund financing. Check it out!
