Money can buy many things, but nothing more valuable than your freedom.
In a world with rising income inequality, limited access to personal finance education, and a host of factors rigging the game in favor of those already at the top, it's more important than ever to invest in the people who need it most.
As a small way to create a more equal financial playing field, the #FinancialFreedom Scholarship exists to support an ambitious student who is motivated to improve his or her life through education.
The scholarship is open to all high school, undergraduate, and graduate school students and non-students from any field of study. The only requirement is that you want to live a life with more financial freedom.
The application deadline is Feb 1, 2022. Winners will be announced on Jun 30, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,000. It will be awarded to 1 winner every 6 months.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 30, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
