For the past two years, 40 students at Boy’s Latin of Philadelphia Charter School and their parents have been spending class and evening time learning about math-based life skills and entrepreneurship.

It’s happening through FS Financial Scholars, a program run by Philly asset manager FS Investments’ philanthropic arm, FS Foundation, and University of Pennsylvania’s Bridges to Wealth.

The program aims to positively impact communities by educating young people on financial literacy to help them achieve financial empowerment and generate greater wealth — and bring families together at the same time.

Now, FS Financial Scholars is expanding to two more Philly high schools starting in the fall. Want to help students at your local school increase their financial know-how?

Apps are due by Monday, July 31. Applicants should be affiliated with a public, charter or private high school located in Philadelphia. Submissions will be reviewed by FS Foundation and Bridges to Wealth on a rolling basis.
