Many of our students are able to access funding through a variety of sources. If you want to take an AlbanyCanCode class, but aren’t able to pay the tuition, here are some resources that you can check out.
Your County's One Stop Office
Each county has a One Stop Office which receives funds from the Department of Labor for training. This should be your first stop in the tuition assistance process. The initial meeting with their office will determine whether or not you meet the criteria for their scholarships. Please note that the funds available vary by county, and by time of year. It is also possible that they may not be able to fund the full amount of your tuition.
Here is contact information for One Stop Offices for the Greater Capital Region and the Hudson Valley:
Adult Career and Continuing Education Services – Vocational Rehabilitation (ACCES-VR) works under the New York State Education Department to assist New Yorkers with disabilities who want to work find employment. Their vision is to see all individuals who want to work have the opportunity to achieve employment independence. Individuals who qualify for services through ACCES-VR can apply for funds to pay tuition for AlbanyCanCode classes.
Veterans Scholarship Fund
Thanks to a generous grant from SEFCU, we are able to provide scholarships to Veterans of the United States Military. If you are a Veteran and are interested in taking one of our classes, please email email@example.com to get a scholarship application. More info can be found here
AlbanyCanCode Success Scholarships
Students who do not qualify for funding from their local One Stop Office or ACCES-VR, and are not Veterans, may apply for an AlbanyCanCode Success Scholarship. These scholarships are provided by members of our employer network or individuals from the community. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get a scholarship application.
Transportation and Childcare Support Scholarships
One of our goals is to remove the barriers that prevent many people in our communities from attending our classes. If you are taking one of our classes and need assistance with transportation or childcare, please email email@example.com to request an application for support funding.
Laptop Lending Library
In 2019 we started the AlbanyCanCode Laptop Lending Library to ensure that all of our students have the means to complete our courses. If you are signed up for or are currently taking one of our classes, and do not have a functional laptop that meets the requirements for your course, please get in touch, either with your instructor or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to request a loaner laptop. Loaner Laptops are given out for the duration of the course, so you are able to bring it home and complete your work outside of class.
If you have a need for financial assistance that is not addressed on this page, please email your instructor or email@example.com. We want our students to succeed, and will work with you to address any barriers that you are encountering with our classes.
