Financial Scholar Program

Since 2017, through a partnership with leading education technology company EverFi, Connexus Association has brought the Financial Scholars Program, an online financial education program, to classrooms in Central Wisconsin.

We sponsor the Financial Scholars Program to make it available to schools at no cost, many of which are mandated to teach financial education but lack the funding for a qualified curriculum.The Financial Scholars Program reaches students through a web-based, interactive course that provides students real-life financial scenarios designed to supply young people with the essential skills needed to make sound financial decisions. Courses include different ways to acquire income, develop a saving and investing plan, create a budget, track expenses, make informed purchases, monitor and protect their money, and navigate financial institutions and financial products in addition to modern topic areas like the gig economy and mobile banking. Each topic is broken down so it is easy for students to understand. Additionally, the students can progress through each course at their own pace. EVERFI’s Financial Scholars Program was designed to help students grow and learn how to be financially capable.
