Why Financial Literacy Matters

Did you know the average student graduates with approximately $30,000 in student loan debt?
Followed by the surprise they owe hundreds of dollars per month in repayment of student loans shortly after graduation.

 

In order to help Rhode Island residents cover tuition, reduce the need for college borrowing, and increase their knowledge of financial topics related to student lending, RISLA’s Knowledge for College Scholarship provides a chance for entrants to win scholarship funds while in their senior year of high school or any year of college.
