One of my younger cousins is moving to the Front Range to attend CSU Fort Collins. Maiele (my cousin) is taking a different approach to funding her education. She's crowd-sourcing it.
Its been 15 years since I was at University, and if it wasn't for Collective Intellect, I would still be paying off my student loans.
Of the folks sitting in Dojo4 today, we have 5 people between 7 and 15 years out of university, 8 degrees, 2 of those degrees (both MS Computer Science) see daily use. Funding sources were: Loans, Parents, Scholarships and Canada. 1 person is still paying on their student loans.
I find it encouraging that Maiele is using her skills and finding creative ways to fund her education.
