Financial Aid For RIE Foundations™

If you feel unable to afford the cost of the RIE® Foundations course, I would like to present you with some options. 

1. Talk to your employer - If your workplace has requested or required you to attend this course, they should be paying for the course. They will benefit from you experience! Most employers are willing to pay half or all of your tuition. 

2. Talk to your friends and family - Learning about RIE is a sound investment in your future career. If you talk to your friends and family about the course and the financial barrier to attending, you may find that they are interested in supporting you by paying for a portion of your tuition. You could even ask that they contribute to the Scholarship Fund in your name!

3. Consider paying in installments - I am happy to accept your course tuition in the form of non-refundable installments and can be flexible about the dates of payment. For example, you may find it easier to contribute a bit after each payday in the months leading up to the course. 

4. Apply for a scholarship - I usually offer two partial needs-based scholarships per course, although this varies depending on how much has been contributed to the Scholarship Fund and current enrollment. Unfortunately, this is rarely enough to cover the amount of scholarship requests I receive, which is why I encourage you to explore the above options before applying. 

Thank you for helping to make it possible for many people to take the course! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. 

Please fill out this form if you would like to be considered for financial aid for the Foundations course. Financial aid applications are due three weeks before the start date of the course. Your spot is not reserved until you are awarded a scholarship, accept it, and pay a deposit.

Thanks for submitting!
