Financial education starts at home! We’re proud to offer the PeerFinance101 Personal Finance Scholarship to college studentsOne of our key messages here at PeerFinance101 is that financial education and good money habits start at home. We want to thank parents that have made personal finance a part of their children’s education and congratulate students for taking the time to start their financial journey.
That’s why we’re proud to offer an annual scholarship of $500 to new and current college students. Submissions will be accepted starting in January of each year with a winner selected by September.
How to Apply for the PeerFinance101 Personal Finance ScholarshipApplicants must submit a 500+ word essay about what your parents taught you about personal finance. Topics can include budgeting, investing, saving money, paying bills, making money or anything your parents taught you about money.
About the Personal Finance ScholarshipA college degree is a great start but is no guarantee that you’ll reach your financial goals in life. I have met people with graduate degrees that struggled with their money because they were never taught good personal finance choices. Schools don’t even teach how to balance a checking account anymore. Good financial habits must start at home and we want to reward families for making money management a priority. Not only can your essay help you pay for college but it will help teach readers smart ways to budget, invest, save and make money.

As of December 1st, 2015 the Bright Futures application became available for the Class of 2016 in the state of Florida. This is one of the few scholarships out there that will not retract the award once it is given to a student during their senior year. It is also one of the easiest applications: Only 34 questions need to be answered (mostly demographic information) and submitted. After that, a student just needs to make sure their school has the most up-to-date information regarding GPA, ACT/SAT scores, and volunteer hours. Remember, a student has until the last day of school to qualify for this award. See below for a application help sheet regarding each question asked on the application.

Common accommodations for students with learning disabilities include longer exam periods, allowing students to take oral exams instead of written, or having a designated reader to assist that student.
