Facebook Bootcamp

Grand Circus is excited to announce the Facebook Bootcamp for the second year in a row! Through the generosity of Facebook, we will be offering scholarships at the Detroit and Grand Rapids campus for our July 2018 bootcamps.

Scholarships will be awarded to Michigan residents who qualify.


What will I learn?
