STRADA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Our goal is to light the path of financial literacy. Each year we will award scholarships to the top three applicants who submit the best presentation about ways to help fight financial illiteracy and actions they’ve taken to help others in the community learn more about becoming financially educated.
Application Deadline: June 7th, 2020.
This scholarship was created to help high school students learn about financial principals and prepare for life after high school. To qualify for the Strada Financial Literacy Scholarship, you must learn about several financial concepts and then demonstrate that you understand the concept by teaching your peers and providing a budget.

The Harris Brothers
the story behind the scholarship
Two Brothers. One Goal.
To end financial illiteracy.
The Harris brothers began investing when they were at the age of 16. Throughout both of their careers they’ve seen too many people make poor financial decisions either because they didn’t know any better, or they were given bad advice. They want to help real people and make a real positive impact one individual, one family and one generation at a time.
“I believe that with proper teaching and education, anyone can have the life they dream of.” -Brian Harris
