Since its inception in 2014, more than 21,000 Iowa high school seniors have registered for this scholarship program, which currently awards $2,000 in college scholarships to each of 30 recipients, plus an additional $250 to each recipient’s high school to be used for scholarship and financial literacy programs.
Registered students experience Student Loan Game Plan and ROCI Reality Check to learn how student loan debt and choice of major affect their financial future and to learn strategies to reduce debt and increase financial know-how. Scholarships are awarded to students who score highest on an assessment related to these tools.
