Financial Literacy Program Targets Students at Black Colleges

The Capital One Financial Corporation in conjunction with the United Negro College Fund has launched a new program aimed at increasing the financial literacy of students at more than 50 historically black colleges and universities. The Capital One Financial Scholars Program uses an educational gaming platform to educate students on loan management, taxes, banking, budgeting, credit, and other financial topics.

Several of the nation’s historically black educational institutions plan to include the financial literacy effort in freshman orientation programs.
