We know many of our students need financial assistance in order to attend CompTIA Tech, and we’re set up to help with two forms of aid. The first is our own set of CompTIA Grants. The second is a set of local grants offered by generous partners for students enrolling at specific campus locations. Since 2012, all eligible students to our IT-Ready Technical Support program have qualified for grants to significantly reduce their tuition expense.
- $1,000: Individuals who have been historically under-represented in the tech industry (African Americans, Latinx, Native Americans and women), as noted by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
- $1,000: U.S. military veterans, their spouses or caregivers
- Partial tuition amount (50%): Annual income above 200% but below 300% of the federal poverty threshold
- Full tuition amount: Annual income below 200% of the federal poverty threshold
Grants are stackable—they can be combined up to the full tuition amount. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen with authorization to work in the U.S.
Generous donor partners help support students at specific locations. Qualifications for aid vary a bit depending on the donor organization, but generally, those who qualify for partial or full financial assistance will be able to demonstrate financial
need and/or be part of an under-served community such as women or people of color. There are also opportunities for veterans.
To apply for either type of tuition assistance, simply begin the online application process. You’ll be prompted to indicate whether you are seeking financial assistance and then will be prompted to answer some additional questions within the application.
