- ASK FAMILY/FRIENDS TO SUPPORT YOUR EDUCATION — Do you have an Uncle or Grandma who would be open to helping you out? It’s worth an ask to those in your immediate circle of family and friends. There’s a saying, you have not because you ask not. The worst they can say is no. If they can’t help you with money, maybe they would be open to assisting in getting a loan set up?
- PAYPAL CREDIT — This is a great option as its a line of credit with no fees or interest for 6 months! For those of you who are needing to build (or re-build credit), this is a great option. Once you use the account to make a payment for education, you can always call them directly and ask for an increased limit.
- IN HOUSE PAYMENT PLANS — (if you have some funds but not all, now) This option is best for those who know they want to attend courses in 1-4 months. If you have at least 50% of the tuition for the course, we Chic Studios, Finance Appointment can set up a customized payment plan for you so you can attend!
- NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS — Have you researched non-profit organizations that give funding for those wishing to learn a trade? Most of the time there is an application process that may include writing an essay about why they should choose you to support or you might meet with their team in person. Always put your best foot forward and know your Why! Propel Network is a great non-profit that caters to a woman entering the workforce, with a focus on beauty!
- PERSONAL LOAN — Go to your bank and apply for a personal loan to pay for your education. Check with your bank to see what their requirements are and set up an appointment with a personal banker– they can walk you through all of your options and help you choose the best loan.
