Earn to Learn FL has launched an online platform to administer financial literacy training for students to improve their money management skills and budget for their technical training, professional certifications, or college degree programs.
To qualify for financial assistance, Earn to Learn FL requires students pursuing postsecondary education to successfully complete a series of financial literacy training courses. These courses are now available online.
Learning plans are customized based on each students’ skills and knowledge, and lessons progress until students demonstrate a mastery of financial concepts and the ability to be financially independent.
Upon completion of required coursework, students and their families deposit up to $500 into a savings account. Earn to Learn FL’s supporters match savings at an 8-to-1 rate. Students then have access to as much as $4,500 that can be applied toward tuition, fees, books, and equipment required to complete a course of study or training.
Students who remain eligible for Earn to Learn FL funding may renew financial assistance until they complete their postsecondary education.
