How long is the workshop?

The workshop starts at 10A Pacific, and the Q&A starts at 1P. packed with actionable strategies to save on college costs.

How is it different from the previous free workshops?

This is a guided experience. We want to work with you and help you navigate the software with ease. There are no replays for this workshop, but you can attend a second date within 30 days of your purchased ticket. We run one Bootcamp per month.

Do I have to buy a software?

No, the College Aid 2.0 Software is included in the workshop and free to keep and use for all your children. You’re welcome :)

What if my child is in college already? Can it work for me?

Absolutely! Our strategies and software can still benefit you, ensuring you optimize your financial plan for your current college expenses. 

Can I still attend if my children are not in high school yet? 

Yes, attending even before your children are in high school is to your benefit. It allows you to plan ahead and maximize your savings potential. There are thousands of dollars to put into your child’s college savings account.

Your time is valuable, and we'll use it effectively. 

This jam-packed LIVE session will give everything you need to save thousands of dollars on your college education fees. 

Tools You'll Get During The Bootcamp 

"This workshop is for anyone who has asked: How in the world do you shoot the moving targets of need-based aid, merit-based aid, and private aid, in a way that works for your family’s finances, AND your student’s dreams and goals?"

– Mike Escobar, Father of 4 & CEO of Yorkshire College Planning

Tap into an extensive database of scholarships and merit-based opportunities, uncovering hidden merit scholarships that can cover the entire cost of tuition even if your student doesn’t have a 4.0 GPA or a perfect SAT score!

This database allowed the Thapar family to get an additional $30,000/year in merit aid (That’s $120,000 over a 4 year degree)

This comprehensive tool provides a personalized score for over 1800 US colleges. Discover which US schools are need-generous, merit-generous, and which ones allow scholarship stacking.

Don’t let the aid you qualify for become useless. Don’t let your private scholarships get eaten up by scholarship displacement.

Don’t just “bite the bullet” when colleges don’t offer you enough financial aid. 

There are two types of appeals: need-based appeals from the parent, and merit-based appeals from the student. I teach you how to do BOTH types of appeals. 

We’ve helped thousands of families appeal for more aid and will show you the do’s and don'ts of appeals, including REAL-LIFE sample letters that secured tens of thousands in additional financial aid for real families.

Sirish Capoor used our training to lower his EFC from $63,000 to $26,500 - but this wasn’t enough. The University of Wisconsin-Madison rejected his low EFC and wanted him to pay full price ($55k/year) anyways. Sirish used our advanced appeals knowledge to write an appeal that reduced his costs by $22K this year.

Master the art of private scholarship applications, impressing committees and securing the funding your child deserves. Find the private scholarships that your child has the best chances of winning. Get the information on my favorite private scholarship exchange, which is a daily-updated database of private scholarships that keeps out all the gimmicks and trash.

After testing close to 100 different scholarship resources, this methodology is Mike’s personal protocol that he used to get his 9 year old daughter $11,200 in scholarships in 2022.

Navigate the complexities of out-of-state tuition with ease, ensuring you capitalize on tuition breaks at colleges in your region.

This ONE tool saved our  client, Jake Rossi, $12,000 a year by allowing them to get in-state tuition at an out-of-state college.

I’m now a father of four and the CEO of Yorkshire College Planning, Founder of Paying for College for High-Income Families and Creator of the College Aid 2.0 and Scholarship Express methodologies.

You’ve worked hard to have a robust income and give your family a good life. You shouldn’t be punished for that with over-the-top college expenses.

I’ve found hundreds of ways to save families thousands of dollars in college costs. Don’t jeopardize your retirement savings or cause your child to take on student loan debt that will take decades to pay back.

Let’s make the numbers make sense for you and your family. 
Join the College Aid 2.0 Bootcamp Workshop - you'll get help for YOUR individual scenario or your money back. 


“To be honest, we would've never known about, probably not even a quarter of the resources that you gave us in the Bootcamp. And even if we would have done our due diligence to look for things like Googling a scholarship for Eagle Scouts, ‘cause our son is gonna be an Eagle Scout soon, doing all the work to apply for it, and then maybe it's a dead-end scholarship that hasn't been maintained for two years.

And so we would've done all this work, and then it's, it's not even an active scholarship.  I just think that we probably would've gotten frustrated if we would've hit those walls. But the Bootcamp saved us that headache.”

- Dan & Maria Walke

My initial EFC was $63,000 and went down to $26,000.

We paid $56,000 for my son’s first year and after the EFC reduction, we’re looking to pay $22,000 this year. It’s $120,000 in savings over four years. 

– Sirish Kapoor  

"Yorkshire has saved us over $300,000 just for the twins. 

We still have one more coming up. It’s about 20,000 per kid per year, so that's 40,000 per year savings to us. $160,000 over four years of savings. It's four years of saving tens of thousand dollars. That cost is a drop in the bucket. It's just, it's a no-brainer. 

 – Liz Belle

Being parents you want to take care of your kids. You kinda look down that long road as to how are you gonna get 'em through those next four years.

"So this year I paid about 70,000 for my son's first year. And I only make a little bit more than that. Holy cow! And that was not researching any scholarships or taking advantage of your services and filling out the FAFSA incorrectly.

But now with your services and just redoing the FAFSA, walking me through every line I'm gonna pay anywhere between 20,000 and 30,000 next year. I mean, that's what, forty…fifty thousand dollars that I'm not gonna have to pay. That's unreal. Wow. And that's just one year, and that's not even finding other scholarships."

– Dr. Stephanie Herring

Look at what past attendees of our Bootcamp have said: 

I think that he [Mike] is a great resource. He was just open to giving us. contacts for SAT tutors or tax advisors or just giving us some resources, some people that we can call on if we need additional help.

Our out-of-state costs are around $25,000, but through the Bootcamp we found merit-aid that we qualify for in the $20-30k range.

You have to start somewhere and you get what you pay for kind of thing. if you have three or four hours, you'll walk away with a lot of information.

– Christine Corey

Colleges make money if you don't do the research. I think they may even probably bank on you not doing the legwork because you will see the price tag and think, "I can't afford this". Or, if you find a way to afford it, you pay the full sticker price. What the Bootcamp has done is allowed us to see that you don't have to pay the full sticker price.

It's relieving to know that the possibility is there that Mike provides the tools, and Mike provides the resources.

I felt the group setting helped a lot. It's a benefit to have an open forum like that. 

You don't know what you don't know until you know it. And that's what [the Bootcamp] is like. You get all these fine points and it's like clarity kicks in, right?

He [Mike] is deciphering all of this confusion and dotting those I's and crossing the T's and adding that punctuation as you go and providing other resources.

Mike has done a lot of the background and the research for you.  Here's your plate. You just got to eat, right? So here it is. Here's, you just got to do the work. 

 The investment of your time and money into the bootcamp is incrementally less than your out-of-pocket college expense versus the money that you could save from investing in a college program like this is going to save you incrementally thousands of dollars or can save you thousands of dollars.  

 – Brian Gowan 

Everything about the financial part of it is is scary to anybody regardless of your income.

The cost of tuition has just gone through the roof. These past ten years is tenfold. Back when we went to school, you could work your way through it, but now you're looking ten, fifteen years down the road trying to get yourself out of that hole.

We we've had a pretty good handle on merit based loans, but but the private loans was something that's that's very new. It was all great stuff. So that's I think that was the the key to it, but just looking at your different charts and and how to break it down is is a was very helpful.

The tools that you have available to make this more affordable and more attainable. We're eliminating ten years off of a loan, I mean, we're looking at thirty thousand dollars right off the top [of college expenses].

 – Eric and Shannon

Not only do you wanna help them by having them come out debt free, but we also don't wanna end up, having to actually finance them when we're in our fifties and sixties.

Even though I wish I would've learned about you guys a year ago when my son was starting freshman year versus sophomore year but I still feel like we're ahead of the game with, parents that have juniors.

Because I had no clue that all of this started getting looked at two years before, the student starts college.  You don't even think about the FAFSA being a big thing until you apply for it. And little do you even know that they're looking at it, two years prior.

We would've never known about, probably not even a quarter of the resources that you gave us.

And even if we would have done our due diligence to look for things like how you definitely mentioned, like. Just Googling like "Scholarship for  Eagle Scouts" 'cause our son is gonna be an Eagle Scout soon, doing all the work to apply for it, and then find out that it's a dead-end scholarship that hasn't been, up, maintained for two years.

And so then we would've done all this work and then it's, it's not even an active scholarship. So I, I just think that we probably would've gotten frustrated, if we would've hit those walls.

But really and truly coming across your company was extremely enlightening at the right time. Right before we could have really caused some big financial disasters heading into preparing for college and, and not getting as much as we probably can now.
