OUR MISSION HAS NEVER BEEN MORE RELEVANT OR NEEDED

Immediate Need

Help us provide cost-of-living support to 10 veterans who were enrolled at Nashville Software School and suddenly lost their ability to use their educational entitlements (e.g. the GI BillⓇ) at NSS.  In losing their entitlement these students lost not only their tuition reimbursement, but also their monthly housing allowance. For a full-time student living in the Nashville area, the housing allowance (or cost-of-living stipend) is around $2000/month (less for a part-time student). NSS was able to help with their tuition through a combination of scholarships and a modified version of NSS' Opportunity Tuition, our deferred tuition plan. As a result, 7 of the 10 students are still able to enroll in their original bootcamp (more on that below). While we were still wrestling with how to help support their cost-of-living, something unexpected happened. A number of NSS graduates, who are veterans, asked for a way to financially help their fellow veterans. You can join them in supporting these veterans through our GoFundMe campaign.
