CLASS OF 2020
Deadline: OCT 24, 2019
Earn to Learn is a needs-based scholarship program that teaches financial literacy, and rewards students and families who are committed to saving money to attend ASU, NAU and UA with $4,000 of matching scholarship funding. Utilizing special matching savings accounts (called Individual Development Accounts or IDAs), qualifying students who make deposits for at least 6 months and meet their $500 savings goal prior to attending one of the three in-state Universities will earn $4,000 in matching funds to pay for tuition, books, and other university related expenses. The matching scholarship is renewable for up to four years depending on on-going funding as long students remain eligible and continue to save $500 each year.
Additionally, the program utilizes coaching for students which includes personal finance training, college readiness training, and ongoing support from the very first day of attending college all the way through graduation. Students must commit up 10 hours per year to continuing on-line personal finance training and/or in-person workshops. The use of IDA’s in conjunction with one-on-one coaching has been proven as a way to help individuals and families develop productive financial behaviors that increase the likelihood of program participants to finish college with a degree and less debt, as well as better prepared for post-college careers.
