Can I provide a student a scholarship instead of a loan?
Unfortunately not. Although we always appreciate these kinds of requests, we only provide students with loan funding. Part of this is because we believe that loans, if done right, are valuable to the student. It helps students set goals, negotiate salaries after graduation, and ultimately feel responsible and invested in their education. Repayments from students also help scale to reach more students, which is ultimately what we hope to achieve. If you would still prefer to provide scholarships, please see the list of our partners who provide scholarships.
