    Loans, credit cards, debt, budgeting, oh my!

    As a group of (somewhat) recent college graduates and young adults, we're no strangers to the fact that navigating the world of finance as a student is no easy feat.

    That's why Access Scholarships is partnering with Frich (the leading personal finance app for Gen-Z) to encourage students like you to take the reins in your financial journey, learning essential money moves and build proactive financial habits along the way. One $500 scholarship will be awarded to students who have overcome hardship throughout their lives.
