The prop firms I'm familiar with would either need 1) you walking in with a profitable track record and getting allocated capital as basically an employee or 2) you're posting your own capital and they will allow you to utilize their margin, but even in those situations you generally need to be a somewhat competent trader so they don't deal with any tail risk issues stepping outside of the risk parameters on the margins.

Your next, next, next, best hope might be to find a former bank prop trader that's gone solo since the banks have been moving those desks off the books and try to pay them to shadow them for a proper apprenticeship.

Topstep is a prop firm and they don't require capital or track record, you just need to be a good trader. But, I think they are either the only ones, or one of a few.
