Why is this program FREE?

As a nonprofit with a mission to get our Central Texas neighbors into great careers, we raise money for your education. Each year we raise enough money to fund our program and cover the tuition and textbooks for over 800 adults, like you. And then we send you to college to get a degree in a high-demand career field. If you’re eligible for our program, your tuition and textbooks are already paid for by the generous support of our funders.
