Ramsey Education and ScholarshipOwl Partner to Increase Student Access to Financial Literacy Tools

Feb 10th, 2023 – Ramsey Education, which has positively impacted the financial futures of over 5 million students, has joined forces with ScholarshipOwl, the leading service for earning college scholarships, to provide personal finance curriculum and access to debt-free higher education to high schools across the United States.    

ScholarshipOwl will sponsor Ramsey Education’s personal finance curriculum, Foundations in Personal Finance: High School Edition, at five under-funded schools. This curriculum, developed by financial expert and best-selling author Dave Ramsey, teaches students practical money management skills, financial responsibility, and the importance of graduating debt free.    

While there has been an increased emphasis on offering personal finance classes, with only 16 states mandating financial literacy education for graduation, too many states don’t offer this practical skillset to students. As a result, millions of students graduate high school without understanding the basics of budgeting, saving, credit and the dangers of debt, retirement planning, and other financial information they’ll need as they approach adulthood.    

A key aspect of the relationship between ScholarshipOwl and Ramsey Education is teaching students the effects that student debt, high-interest rates, and predatory loans can have on their financial future. 

Ramsey Education and ScholarshipOwl will fill this critical education gap, bringing financial literacy and a focus on debt-free higher education to hundreds of thousands of high school students each year.   

“We are thrilled to be joining forces with ScholarshipOwl to bring financial literacy to more students,” said Jim King, Executive Vice President Ramsey Education. “By teaching financial literacy and providing access to scholarships, we can empower students to make informed decisions about their education and future careers.  Focusing on applying for scholarships rather than taking out student loans is key to a debt-free future.”   

Through this curriculum, students will be introduced to ScholarshipOwl’s industry-leading AI-powered scholarship matching and application engine, where they can easily connect with leading brands and organizations offering scholarships. This will allow students to fund their education without taking on costly loans or accumulating student debt.   

In addition to connecting students with scholarships, ScholarshipOwl also has a solution for brands and organizations. ScholarshipOwl for Business provides an easy and efficient way for businesses to create and publish scholarships. With ScholarshipOwl for Business, brands can easily activate students through targeted scholarship campaigns, setting goals and success metrics to measure the impact of their scholarships. This solution allows brands to not only support and invest in the education of students, but also to create meaningful engagement and build relationships with the next generation of leaders and customers.    

“At ScholarshipOwl, our mission is to make the scholarship process as easy and accessible as possible for students,” said David Tabachnikov, CEO of ScholarshipOwl. “Through our partnership with Ramsey Education, young people will be introduced to strategies, resources and opportunities that will enable them to fund their education and live financially free.”    

By opening more access points for scholarships and debt-free education resources, this partnership between Ramsey Education and ScholarshipOwl will make higher education more accessible and affordable for all.
