Five Scholarships Being Awarded
I am pleased to announce the first news of 2018 is LeapFox will be awarding five scholarships to our upcoming IT Administrator training program, which starts on February 19, 2018. For details on the program check out the video below or visit the dedicated web page for the IT Administrator program. The program is broken up into three phases–each of which lasts two months. Each scholarship will include full funding for tuition to one of the three phases (regular cost is $7000). Students will need to purchase their own books/labs which will cost $300. No additional purchase (to other phases) is required.

Why are we giving away scholarships?
The value of each scholarship is $7000. In total we will be giving out $35,000 in scholarship dollars. We are giving the scholarships away because this is our opportunity to give back to the community. I started LeapFox 10 years ago in the back room of my computer repair business. From those humble beginnings LeapFox has grown to be one of the largest privately-owned technical vocational training school in the Northwest. In return for helping take care of my family, I am now helping take care of other families in the community. And the way I am doing it is by helping others become self sustainable. As a conservative business man I believe this is the best way to help others. Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man (or woman) to fish and feed him/her and their family for an entire lifetime.
