Financial Literacy

Making informed decisions about managing money and paying for college is becoming increasingly important for students. Financial Literacy will empower KEY Center students with information to make decisions that impact their futures.  When students manage their money, they are prepared to successfully meet their goals and have the finances available to make them a reality.

 In conjunction with Victoria College, the KEY Center is utilizing valuable information relayed through SALTmoney's website www.saltmoney.org. Students are able to cover a wide range of financial topics, including the ones listed below. KEY Center members are to complete one Financial Literacy Module per year.

KEY Center Grants & Scholarships

Based on available funding, the KEY Center has access to designated grants and scholarships for our members.  Students are required to complete an application and submit it by the posted deadlines.  Qualifications vary but can include PELL eligibility, GPA requirements, active participation in KEY Center opportunities, enrollment status, and an essay.  KEY Center Financial Assistance opportunities will be posted on Facebook and emailed to all participants.

Financial Aid Assistance

KEY Center staff is available for guidance in the completion of scholarship applications and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  All KEY Center members are required to apply for financial aid each academic year they are active in the program.  These applications include the FAFSA application and the Victoria College scholarship application.  As additional grant and scholarship opportunities become available, KEY Center staff will provide information and resources to assist in the various application submissions.  Students are also encouraged to work with the VC Financial Aid Office to maintain their availability for other opportunities.
