2019 CFSFC Financial Education Scholarship

The Center for Smart Financial Choices (CFSFC) found that students are often unaware of the true cost of college and how their families would pay for them to attend. In fact, many students were unaware of what they could personally do to reduce reliance on student loan debt. CFSFC provides education on the variety of choices like whether a two year program may pay them more and mean less schooling and expense.
