The bootcamp investment builds your financial freedom. Together, we can break down financial barriers to bootcamp.

Everyone should have access to a tech career

Every cohort, we see how supportive, community-centric, alternative education changes the trajectory of not just one life, but many lives. Even when things are hard. Even during recession and global economic crisis.

We believe bootcamps help bridge economic inequity. Bootcamps improve not just a career trajectory, but whole lives. 

Your commitment to growth and education deserves to be honored. We hope to do that by reducing financial barriers to bootcamp.

A few examples of scholarships & savings:

Early application savings

The early bird gets the worm. Apply by the early application deadline for a $1,000 discount on tuition. Sorry, this can’t be combined with the Grand Circus Diversity Scholarship.

Grand Circus Diversity Scholarship

We believe that the tech community should reflect the diversity of our community. To help with that effort, we offer diversity scholarships to people who belong to underrepresented communities to ensure they have access to a life-changing web development career. People who self-identify as any of the following automatically qualify for a scholarship of $1,750 (*):

  • Anyone who identifies as a woman
  • Black+ 
  • Latinx
  • LGBTQ+ 
  • Native American+
  • Veterans

Through this scholarship, we hope to reduce barriers and improve access to web development careers for underrepresented people in technology and together change the face of the industry.

(*) In 2023, as our standard tuition will be increasing, we also will be increasing the amount of our Grand Circus Diversity Scholarship amount to $2,200.

Lasting Change Scholarship

The Lasting Change Scholarship, offered by Climb Credit, focuses on helping people in the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) community grow in their careers and increase their wages to bridge the gap of economic inequality that exists in our country and create lasting change. Three students will receive up to a $5,000 scholarship to attend any Climb partner program as part of our initiative to help underrepresented groups advance their education and careers, by attending programs like those at Grand Circus.

Michigan National Guard State Tuition Assistance Program

The Michigan National Guard State Tuition Assistance Program (MINGSTAP) provides up to $6,000 tuition assistance to members of the Michigan National Guard who are attending any public or private college, university, vocational school, technical school or trade school located in Michigan. This program is available to qualified members of the Michigan National Guard. We’ve had multiple students take advantage of this program.

(*) Grand Circus will be increasing its tuition to $14,750 in 2023—our first increase in more than four years, reflecting expansion of our curricular and service offerings. Students can lock in the 2022 price for our January 2023 bootcamps by applying before November 15, 2022.

Bootcamp Tuition

Our tuition for 2022 is $11,750 (*). What most students actually end up paying—the net price—is less than our list price, as:

  • Grand Circus provides scholarships to eligible students.
  • Early-action discounts often are available in our application process.
  • Select scholarships are available through third-party partners.

For those unable to pay tuition in full upfront, Grand Circus offers installment payment plans. Loans also are available through our valued partners Ascent Funding and Climb Credit.
