Financial and credit literacy starts at home. However, many people do not have access to proper information and tools to teach these skills.
Many young individuals fall into financial traps by not making proper choices with regards to their finances and credit. Personal finance is an important skill and helps prepare young people for a better tomorrow. In order to encourage future generations of youth to make smart financial decisions, the Scorenavigator Financial Literacy Scholarship will award high school juniors and seniors who come from a low-income background and have a 3.0 GPA or higher.
To apply, write about your personal financial experiences and how you plan to use your financial education to better your future.
What are your personal experiences with finances and financial education as a whole? How do you plan on using what you learn to better your future?
The application deadline is Jul 15, 2022. Winners will be announced on Aug 15, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,000 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Aug 15, 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.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
