Thinkful Expands Payment Option: "No Up-Front Tuition + Living Stipend"
Aspiring web developers in Atlanta, Denver and Minneapolis have the opportunity to apply for Thinkful's new Income Share Agreement (ISA) with Living Stipend for our upcoming Engineering Immersion course. Under this ISA, students receive a $1,500 monthly living stipend—to cover expenses such as rent, food and transportation—throughout the five-month program.
As with all Thinkful courses, students emerge ready for business. They work with Thinkful career counselors to land new, high-paying jobs in tech. The ISA with Living Stipend can be put toward careers in web development; though we also offer the opportunity to launch careers in data science, data analytics, and product design.
Like our other ISA options, Thinkful's Living Stipend requires no up-front tuition payment. Instead, students finance their learning by paying a percentage of their post-graduation income: 15% over four years. The payment period starts as soon as graduates start earning $40,000 per year or more, and is capped at $40,000.
Our ISAs make maintaining your lifestyle during your education easier. Furthermore, the ISA with Living Stipend is an answer to the question of how to attend an immersive career advancement program without a steady source of income.
Nearly 60% of Americans have less than $1,000 in savings. People often struggle to achieve upward mobility due to lack of economic resources and geographic distance from brick-and-mortar educational institutions. Thinkful's programs—which combine online 1-on-1 learning with a mentor, local career networks, and community-building—have expanded educational access to students in 22 cities across the country.
Thinkful's Living Stipend is available to students based in Atlanta, Minneapolis, and Denver—and coming soon to more locations—who enroll in our Engineering Immersion program. If this includes you, apply today and change your career for good.
