Title: Meet the 20 Knowledge First Financial Graduate Study Award Winners
author: Tess Campbell
Knowledge First Financial understands how part of a student’s success in their studies is through their financial education security. To help alleviate some of this burden, Knowledge First Financial created a scholarship for graduate students who have achieved great things in academics, illustrated passion within their field of study and demonstrated a commitment towards community involvement.
These students had to submit a personal statement describing their accomplishments and the impact they hope to make while demonstrating their personality, a resume filled with their engagement, their academic records, and references.
