funding college debt-free boot camp

Ready to take action towards funding college debt-free but have no clue where to start?

Registration for the 2021 Funding College Debt-Free Boot Camp is open! (hosted virtually)

January 3-March 14

The process of getting into college can feel overwhelming (not to mention paying for it).

Whether you have taken action towards funding your education debt-free (with little or no results) or are brand new to all of this—you don’t have to go through this journey alone.

Parents: Do you feel this way?

I want my student to go to college, but I am unable to fund their entire education.

I never went to college/attended college decades ago—the process today feels unknown to me and I don’t know where to start.

I encourage my student to take action towards applying for funding, but they lack motivation and is not taking this process seriously.

Students: Do you feel this way?

I have the dream of going to college but I don’t want the burden of student loan debt.

I am not a star athlete nor have a 4.0 GPA…so why bother applying for funding?

Between work, extracurricular activities, and schoolwork—college funding has taken a back seat.

Is funding college debt-free even possible?

If you feel this way—you are not alone and feel very similar to the families that I have worked with. On a personal level, I can totally relate to some of these exact feelings because I’ve been there…

Hi there! I'm Elease,
The Student Navigator

…speaker, author, and award-nominated founder of The Student Navigator. (Yes, my professional nickname and company name are the same!)

Most of all, I graduated college debt-free without taking out a loan along the way—and has helped students fund their entire college education debt-free through my guidance.

Can I tell you a secret?

Funding college debt-free is possible and more students are achieving it than you think.

In fact, statistics reveal that an estimated 30% of students do NOT take out student loans for college. That’s an estimated 1 in 3 students who graduate debt-free. 

I’ll let that sink in…I bet you thought the stats would be lower, right?

That’s why I am hereto change the dialogue and help you join the 30%.

But Elease, I am already in college and took out a loan. Is there hope for me?

Imagine if you funded the remaining amount of your education debt-free. That would still be HUGE weight lifted, right?

Here’s my secret formula:

To fund your education debt-free, you only need 3 things: a roadmap, accountability, and the mindset to take consistent action and not quit. (YAY for simplicity!)

College Sophomore, Ringling College of Art & Design | Sarasota, FL

The friendliness of my mentor really made me feel like I was an actual person instead of someone that could easily be passed off to another mentor. I feel better knowing the company values me as a person, even when it’s not in regards to what I signed up for.

I have had nothing but a wonderful and helpful experience with this company. I always felt as though I was in the best hands. My questions were always answered very thoroughly and a good portion of the time, my mentor was so detailed and forthcoming with information originally that I didn’t really need to ask any questions. She was of the utmost help and I feel more confident moving forward having learned the things from this company to help me apply myself better to both my school and future employment opportunities.

With the consistency I experienced, I feel as though I have set myself on a pace to continue applying for and possibly winning a multitude of scholarships. I truly want to thank The Student Navigator for bringing me to this point and I look forward to speaking with them again in the future.“

High School Sophomore | Atlanta, GA

This really opened my eyes to understand that I need to pay attention and start looking into what I wanna do and what type of field I want to go into. It also helped me realize that I need to prepare more for college and it’s really made my mind a lot more alert with what I really want to do. I’m glad I did it. It was a great experience and I recommend it to everyone…it prepares you for the expenses so to you it’s like a head start to what you should be doing.”

Sound like the type of guidance, support, and accountability, you need as you take action towards funding college debt-free?

If I had to guess...

You're still scrolling on this page because you're still wondering if the Boot Camp is right for you. Am I right?

That's okay! Let's answer that together with this quick yes/no quiz...

The Boot Camp is NOT for you if...

The Boot Camp IS for you if...

Elease, if receiving funding does not happen overnight,
then what will be accomplished by completing the Boot Camp?

Elease, if receiving funding does not happen overnight, then what will be accomplished by completing the Boot Camp?

Let me take you behind the scenes for a moment..

When I started my funding college debt-free journey, it was all trial and error. Ultimately, I earned enough to fund my freshman year of college debt-free. I took action again, and funded my sophomore year debt-free. At this point, I found my groove and duplicated what was working and crossed the stage debt-free without ever having to take out a loan along the way.

I’ve taken those organic strategies that worked for me and turned it into a step-by-step roadmap for you to implement and repeat within your journey. 

But the key was repetition.

Think of it like this...

Have you ever wanted to get in better physical shape?

After 1 day in the gym, our bodies are not fully transformed, right? It requires us to consistently take the action of exercising to achieve results.

The same applies with funding your education debt-free.

Think of me as your personal trainer and the Boot Camp as your workout plan. I will coach you along the way as you learn and implement my funding college debt-free roadmap. 

The mission behind this 10-week Boot Camp is for you to learn my roadmap and begin to implement it (in real-time step-by-step) with hands-on guidance and support along the way.

By the end of the Boot Camp, you would have been taught my roadmap and be equipped to repeat + implement the roadmap throughout your educational journey post-Boot Camp.

*But don’t forget—upon graduating from the Boot Camp, you will have continued access to the modules so you can refer back to this roadmap after the Boot Camp is over!

Working Professional/Prospective Grad Student | Rogers, AZ

The Student Navigator bootcamp has been an instrumental tool for helping me structure my path toward debt-free graduation as a prospective grad student in terms of refining my purpose, school selection, scholarships by category, fellowships and more.

Highly recommended that anyone in industry, college, high school and even middle school to take this course as a preliminary for preparing for college. It will provide you with the solid foundation you need to have to make more informed decisions about college selection, timing, and building good habits on the path to debt-free graduation. It’ll be time well-spent on the front-end to save you from a lot of needless debt later on.”

The idea of funding college debt-free can still seem impossible. Here are some real-life success stories of students who utilized my guidance:

let's dream

Close your eyes and imagine...

What would your life be like if you funded your education debt-free?

Funding college debt-free positions you to have a blank canvas after graduation to...

You can do all of those things, but imagine doing that without the burden of student loan debt?

You see, this program is deeper than talking about college and costs. It's teaching you how to position yourself for the future—positioning you to be able to go all-in with pursuing your passion and purpose without the bondage of student loand debt.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Boot Camp starts January 3 and ends March 14, 2021

Students can participate in the Boot Camp ranging from middle school (age 13+), high school, and college/trade school!

While the Boot Camp is tailored to navigate funding college debt-free, students pursuing advanced degrees have found the strategies that are shared in the Boot Camp to be helpful.

Students can participate in the Boot Camp starting at age 13!

The earlier the better. There is a common myth that the time to take action towards funding college debt-free is during 11th/12th grade of high school. However, there is funding on younger levels as well. We recommend not delaying so your student can begin to learn our roadmap and take action towards receiving funding.

The Student Navigator is not a debt-reduction or debt-settlement service. We do not have any direct relationships with student loan providers.

We serve to navigate students on the proactive end towards funding their education debt-free. If you have taken out a loan but have a remaining amount of your education leftwe can navigate you towards funding that remaining amount debt-free!

As shared earlier, it takes a village. There are wonderful college resources out there that can serve in conjunction with the Boot Camp.

Aside from receiving multiple award nominations, what makes this program unique is that it is designed from Elease’s unique perspective as someone who personally successfully lived it and done it debt-free. Elease has experienced many of the same feelings and perspectives that many students who are on this journey have felt. As a woman in her 20s, Elease can get on students’ level and connect with them in a relatable way. In fact, students have rated their experience 4.7 out of 5 stars!

In addition, the Boot Camp is one of the only programs that teach students how to fund their education debt-free beyond just scholarships. There are untold ways that students can receive funding outside of scholarships. Not only did Elease utilize that funding during her journey, but shares it in the Boot Camp.

Lastly, although in a virtual setting, students will still receive hands-on guidance and accountability throughout the Boot Campwhile simultaneously focusing on their personal growth and enhancing their positive character traits such as their work ethic, mindset, and more!

While the mission if the Boot Camp is to teach students Elease’s roadmap, students will be taking action along the wayincluding applying for scholarships and other funding opportunities that they are eligible for (utilizing Elease’s strategies as they apply).

That answer is up to you. Success in life requires consistent action. The same applies here at The Student Navigator. We have a proven system that has helped students fund their education debt-free. Our system works but you must work it. We are here to teach you our roadmap but you must take consistent action. The ball is in your court.

Keep in mind, this program is not a “get-funding-quick” scheme. While it is possible that you could be selected for funding by an organization during the Boot Camp, do not expect your entire college education to be funded by the end of the 10-week  Boot Camp. Every funding opportunity has their own deadlines and timelines for selecting students.  

Think of it like this...

Have you ever wanted to get in better physical shape?

After 1 day in the gym, our bodies are not fully transformed, right? It requires us to consistently take the action of exercising to achieve results. The same applies with funding your education debt-free. Think of Elease as your personal trainer and the Boot Camp as your workout plan. She will coach you along the way as you learn and implement her funding college debt-free roadmap. 

The mission behind this 10-week Boot Camp is for you to learn Elease’s roadmap and begin to implement it (in real-time step-by-step) with hands-on guidance and support along the way.

By the end of the Boot Camp, you would have learned her roadmap and be equipped to repeat + implement the roadmap throughout your educational journey post-Boot Camp.

*But don’t forget—upon graduating from the Boot Camp, you will have continued access to the modules so you can refer back to this roadmap after the Boot Camp is over!
