GAfutures Student Newsroom
April 2020 Edition
April is Financial Literacy Month
National Financial Literacy Month is recognized in April to highlight the importance of financial literacy and teach young adults how to establish and maintain healthy habits. In order to raise general awareness of the topic, various financial literacy programs have been launched on a nationwide basis to help students better manage their finances.
In honor of National Financial Literacy Month, GAfutures will be highlighting the College Money Matters Module. College Money Matters focuses on helping future, current and former college students be better equipped to make smart financial choices.
Starting from choosing a major that will support a desired lifestyle, to choosing a college that fits a student’s financial situation, to the process of paying and applying to colleges, to knowing how to repay any money borrowed, College Money Matters is filled with resources to help student’s get financially fit before, during and after college.
