RALEIGH, N.C., Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Two North Carolina community-college students have each won a $500 college scholarship by satisfactorily completing Advanced Money Management, a financial literacy module on CFNC.org.
Two scholarships are awarded each year by a random drawing of students who complete either Advanced Money Management or Financial Literacy 101, the free, interactive financial literacy modules available for college students on CFNC.org. Scholarship funding is made available by Decision Partners, a nonprofit organization which developed and customized the financial literacy information particularly for N.C. students who use CFNC.org.
Scholarship recipient Jacob Woodhouse of Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College explained why he decided to go through the financial literacy material: "In life, I never want to be unprepared in any situation. This course helped me become more aware of the consequences and responsibility of borrowing student loans."
While many North Carolina colleges strongly encourage their students to improve their money management skills with the financial literacy options at CFNC.org, anyone can access these materials for free. There is even a third financial literacy program specifically for high school students. Look for all three under "Financial Literacy" in the "Paying for College" section of the CFNC.org website.
