Do I have to have an incorporated business?

What are the costs?​

This program is normally $2,500/person. With the support of the Town of Gilbert, we have made 5 free scholarships available for Gilbert residents to participate. (Participant is still responsible for their own hosting, domain and email platform fees. Typically $250.)
