The goal for this program is to promote economic justice by increasing access to financial wellness for first generation college students as well as students from minoritized backgrounds.
The Financial Wellness cohort program will teach students basic financial wellness skills such as budgeting, and one-on-one financial coaching sessions. The program will also provide on-going budget consultation support to the participants. At the completion of the program, students will be able to apply their knowledge of financial wellness strategies to everyday life situations. The student participants will also earn up to a $300 book scholarship.
The Financial Wellness Cohort is a collaboration with the Center for Equity and Inclusion, Office of Student Financial Aid, Office of Student Advocacy and Support, and Sound Outreach.
