What is an Income Share Agreement?
Income share agreements (ISAs) provide an alternative financing source for students to attend and complete post-secondary studies. With an ISA, students receive education funding in exchange for a fixed percentage of the future earnings that their education helps them generate. There is no principal or interest payment obligation; students only make payments when they’re making money.

Education needs to be treated as an investment by everyone: schools, families, investors, employers and the government.
