Grants ranging from $2,000 to $5,000 are available to all accredited U.S. non-profit colleges and universities.
Grant funds may be used to support student awareness campaigns, workshops, online financial literacy tools and other activities and resources that promote financial literacy and provide opportunities for students to increase their personal financial management skills and abilities.
The application guidelines are available here. Applicants, in addition to meeting other criteria, must participate with an institutionally recognized student organization that is involved in planned financial literacy efforts on campus. Proposed programs must be implemented between Aug.1 and Nov. 30.
