      Hi Siddharth,

      Sorry for the late reply. Yes you are. It’s not that hard to get once you give sufficient information : )

      Wishing you all the best!

    Thanks, Giovanni. I’d heard that Coursera provides financial aid but didn’t know the process. This helped 🙂

  3. Vivian V. says:

    Is there a way to apply for financial aid after enrolled in a course or after completed the course?

    • Giovanni says:

      Hi Vivian. I don’t think there’s an available option to apply for financial aid after you’ve already enrolled and paid for the course. I’d advise you contact Coursera’s support. Regards.

    What should I write in the Third write-up required for Financial Aid “When participating in this course, how do you intend to demonstrate academic integrity and contribute to the course’s community? (50-300 words)”.

    • Giovanni says:

      Well, you can say something like–I’d always participate in forum discussions. I’d obey the rules of the community and course. I’d make sure I finish my assignments and meet deadlines. I’d try my best to achieve high grades.Etc.
