The Financial Literacy for College Success Conference and Internet Courses were made possible by a $238,000 federal College Access Challenge Grant for 2010-11 to conduct outreach and financial literacy education for college bound and new college students across Kansas. Some of the specific goals of the program are:
- Planning, organizing and delivering financial literacy education programming to college-bound and college students.
- Writing financial literacy materials to be used live and online.
- Developing an online course on financial literacy for new college students.
- Organizing a state-wide conference for high school counselors and administrators.
- Assessing the effectiveness of the programs carried out under the grant and making continual improvements as needed.
