Financial Literacy Importance Scholarship

The Financial Literacy Importance Scholarship is a $500 scholarship that’s open to all students who understand the importance of managing their finances. The deadline to apply is April 1, 2023, and winners will be announced on May 30, 2023.


The way we manage our money can heavily impact our lives. It can come to a point that poorly-managed finances can keep you from living comfortably and achieving your goals, such as owning a car or buying a house.

College is expensive and it’s commonly known that college students don’t have loads of money to spare. College is a time where it’s extremely important to learn how to manage your personal finances. For that reason, we want to give $500 to a deserving student that understands why it’s important to manage their money and does what they can to be smart with their finances.
