ABOUT EARN TO LEARN FL

We Empower Low-to-Moderate Income Students to Successfully Complete College

Established in 2011, Earn to Learn FL is a successful matched savings financial assistance program. It combines student savings with financial assistance, personal finance training, and college success coaching to help low-to moderate-income and under-represented students obtain a college education and graduate career ready with little to no student loan debt.

Eligible students and their families deposit up to $500 into an Earn to Learn FL savings account each year, then receive an 8:1 match through combined university support and other public and philanthropic funding. This creates up to $4,500 per academic year in funds for tuition, books, fees and other approved educational related expenses.
