Not all students have access to objective, high-quality financial education that teaches them to be critical decision-makers instead of pliant consumers.

Let's change this.


The UChicago Financial Education Initiative seeks to empower all individuals to navigate the financial system with confidence, make informed and reasoned financial decisions throughout their lives, and realize long-term financial well-being.

The Challenge

Individuals at every stage of life don't have access to financial education that can lead them to financial well-being.

Boy student
80% never given opportunity to learn about personal finance
Girls 33% of American adults feel that their level of financial knowledge keeps them from making financial progress

The Opportunity

By researching, uncovering, translating, and delivering a comprehensive approach to financial education we ensure that a lack of financial education is no longer a barrier.
