Many students receive funding through scholarships, Vocational Rehabilitation and other forms of assistance. EGTI is now listed as an IN Training provider with the Department of Workforce Development (WorkOne) and there are federal dollars available to qualified candidates through this partner as well. Families always have the option to private pay, use ABLE account or Trust fund monies and we have a local bank partner willing to assist with financing options. Be sure to investigate your options.
