Financial Freedom Scholarship

Money can buy many things, but nothing more valuable than your freedom.

About the Scholarship

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 Financial Freedom 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.

 

Note: For anyone who wants to start their own scholarship, you can do so in a few easy steps here.
