INsight Financing

Fellows financially commit to Insight by selecting one of our three financing options: a refundable upfront payment, a loan, or an Income Share Agreement (ISA).

All of these options are backed by our guarantee: you will only complete the financial commitment if you achieve the high level of success that we expect for our community.

Insight Guarantee

When you become a Fellow, Insight makes a guarantee to you with three components:
$100K+  SALARY
You accept an offer for a position that earns at least $100,000 USD annually.
WITHIN 6 MONTHS
You accept an offer dated within 6 months of the end date of the 7-week training program.
IN A RELEVANT FIELD

You accept an offer within a field relevant to the programs offered by Insight.

Fellows receive the full membership benefits for the remainder of their career, even if their financial commitment is waived as a result of the guarantee not being satisfied.
Scholarship Opportunities
Our goal is to help everyone with the right skills participate in Insight regardless of their financial situation. We offer several scholarships to help reduce the barriers to taking those first steps to launch your thriving career.
