The RISE Financial Progress Scholarship awards five $3,000 scholarships each year to students who demonstrate a desire to improve their financial knowledge and educate others about personal finance.
At RISE, our customers – hardworking college-educated professionals – have fewer options to make progress financially because they have low credit scores. While we offer tools and resources to improve their financial futures, we know that the best way to avoid these challenges is to not suffer from a low credit score in the first place.
We’ve developed the RISE Financial Progress Scholarship to help hardworking students achieve their dreams while also teaching as many students as possible what they need for long-term financial success.
The RISE Financial Progress Scholarship awards five $3,000 scholarships each year to students who demonstrate a desire to improve their financial knowledge – by taking a financial course – and sharing what they learn – through a scholarship essay.
Scholarship recipients may use the scholarship money to help pay for educational expenses, including tuition, fees, housing, textbooks, or even a new computer.
Program cutoff will be the first 1,000 applications submitted or the May 1, 2020 deadline, whichever is first.
