At the Gillman Bruton Capone Law Group, we understand the importance of financial stability. Through the Smart Saving Scholarship, we will reward one individual who has developed smart saving habits with $1,000 towards their education.
Personal finance curriculum in public schools needs improvement. Most students go through high school without learning how to budget and save for the real world. Many young adults struggle with this, making their adjustment difficult to adulthood. Talking about finance, budgeting, and saving earlier is beneficial, leading to more people understanding the system and how to protect themselves.
Still, the most challenging part after learning how is putting lessons into practice. We admire anyone’s ability to set aside everyday temptations and focus on planning their future, especially financially. This is why we started the Smart Saving Scholarship. Through this scholarship, we would like to raise awareness of the importance of saving and budgeting and the practice of passing those lessons down to children. The Smart Saving Scholarship is intended to award a student who has learned the importance of saving and has come up with practical ways of saving in their daily life. Students are invited to share how they learned financial responsibility and any tips they would pass on to younger generations.
The recipient of the Smart Saving Scholarship will be chosen during the month following the scholarship deadline.
