21 Savage’s Leading By Example Foundation and the consumer fintech company Chime have announced a partnership to expand the Grammy winner’s Bank Account initiative. The new Bank Account Financial Literacy Campaign provides a certified six-course online program for people looking to learn about managing money. Participants will have access to lessons in banking, budgeting, credit scores, and more.
The courses are open to everyone and available in both English and Spanish. High school students in grades 9-12 will also have the opportunity to submit an essay for a chance to earn a $1000 scholarship. Students who meet the requirements and complete the 6-part playlist before December 4, 2020 will be eligible to win one of the 100 grants.
“I’m happy to team up with Chime to make this year’s Bank Account Campaign bigger than ever with a new national financial literacy and scholarship program,” said Savage. “I’ve been an advocate for financial literacy because I believe it can help free youth to focus on the more important things in life.”
