“Cinema-quality video, interactive learning exercises, and the most engaging instructors from schools like Yale, NYU, Cornell, and MIT.” I have heard these online college classes are like nothing else, I’m super intrigued by them!


Outlier.org (from the co-founder of MasterClass) is reimagining higher education as a resource that is accessible, equitable, and affordable for everyone. We have developed the world's best online, for-credit university-level courses, taught by some of the most celebrated educators in the world. Our courses employ cinematic content powered by cutting-edge science to create an immersive, student-friendly learning experience that’s delivering game-changing student success levels.


They are offering 1000 scholarships for a class (a $400 value, worth 3 credits from Univ of Pittsburgh) to people in the following fields:


Healthcare workers

Cashiers in grocery and general merchandise stores

Janitors and maintenance workers

Agricultural workers

Childcare workers

Transportation workers (e.g. buses, taxi, Uber, Lyft, subway, etc.)

Mailing and shipping service workers

Educators

Protective service workers (police and EMTs)

Social welfare service workers (e.g. housing shelters, food banks, etc.)

Restaurants and food delivery workers


If your son/daughter (or you) works in these fields, this scholarship is totally worth applying for. You have two years to use it. If you get it, please let me know how it goes. I’m so interested in these and hoping that they become more affordable!
