A web-based course, the Kansas Financial Scholars Program, created and hosted by EverFi, uses the latest in new media technologies – video, animations, 3-D gaming, avatars, and social networking – to bring complex financial concepts to life for today’s digital generation. Through the Kansas Financial Scholars Program, students will become certified in over 600 topics in financial education, allowing them to become more informed, responsible citizens.
The 10-unit course is aligned to the Kansas State Standards and offers 6 hours of programming aimed at teaching, assessing and certifying students in a variety of financial topics including credit scores, insurance, credit cards, student loans, mortgages, taxes, stocks, savings, 401k’s and other critical concepts that map to national financial literacy standards. The platform uniquely tracks the progress and score of every student and provides students who successfully complete the course with Certification in Financial Literacy, a valuable mark of distinction on college applications and resumes.
This interactive financial management educational program is available to all Kansas high school students at no cost to schools.
To date, more than 7 million students have completed EverFi learning platforms.
