Discover Financial Services seeks to ensure that all students have the skills needed for a successful financial future. In support of this goal, Discover administers the Pathway to Financial Success (PFS) program which provides grants to U.S. public high schools that implement a financial literacy curriculum. Per the PFS website, in order to be eligible for grants a high school:
- Must implement or be looking to implement a financial education curriculum;
- Use a measurement tool to assess participation in and comprehension of the financial education curriculum; and
- Agree to share overall results of the measurement tool’s pre and post-curriculum testing with Discover upon the program’s completion, to assess what worked and what didn’t.
Grant awards are determined on a program-by-program basis. For more information about the grant program and the complet RFP, click here.
