Financial aid, student loans, interest rates. What does it all mean? If the first time you’ve thought about these things was when you filled out your college apps, you’re not alone.
Stats show that most Americans aren’t financially literate. And as a result can’t make good decisions when it comes to money. We want to help change this.
We’ve partnered with Discover to bring financial education to YOUR school. Along with Discover’s Pathway to Financial Success  program, we’ve launched a petition. People that sign the petition and share it with 5 friends are eligible for a $3,000 scholarship. (We pick one winner every month. Yay!)
This month’s winner is 20-year-old Patrick Huynh. Check out our interview below.
Why did you share this petition?
A lot of people still won’t receive enough financial aid through FAFSA and other forms. And so by learning about this petition, they will know more options on how to receive funding for their education.
What's one thing you wish you had learned about finances that you now know?
It is a lot easier to apply for financial aid and there are way more options out there than I had originally thought.
What will you use this scholarship toward?
It will pay for housing and tuition [at UC Santa Cruz]!
