Stipend Assistance for
Learners Enrolled in ITSS Programs

In partnership with the non-profit SkillUp Coalition, Generation USA provides eligible IT Support Specialist learners with a $700 cash stipend, paid out in 2 installments approximately halfway through the program and then post-graduation ($350 per payment).

Learners must meet the following criteria:

  • Aged 18+; learners need to provide a form of government issued ID (see below)
  • Have obtained less than a bachelor’s degree in the United States (HS graduate, GED, Associate’s Degree, or some college but no degree all qualify) or a bachelor’s degree or less from a university outside the United States
  • Register on the SkillUp platform; learners will do this when they receive the application
