PRIME STEM and Project BEST scholars must complete a financial literacy and a financial aid workshop each year. The TRIO Programs has created financial and economic literacy modules that are available online (via Canvas). Additional workshops are offered in collaboration with the Florida Department of Education, Office of Student Financial Assistance, and the UCF Office of Student Financial Assistance. Topics covered include the following: FAFSA (Free Application for Student Aid), how to budget, managing your credit management, financial planning, setting financial goals, and loans debt management. Workshops are available in both face-to-face and online formats.
