The Museum Finance Academy (MFA) is a FREE five session personal finance certificate course for 11th and 12th graders with the goal of teaching students to aspire to financial independence through developing an appreciation for savings, establishing financial goals and learning to avoid scams. In Spring 2022, this course will be conducted over Zoom on April 26, May 3, 10, 17 and 18. Two classes will be offered on these days to reach a greater number of students. One will be offered from 4:15–5:30pm Eastern Time and the second from 4:15–5:30pm Central Time. Students must choose one class time and remain in that class for the duration of the course.
A zoom link will be provided to students prior to each class. Students are expected to attend all five sessions and keep cameras on during the sessions. This course requires NO prior knowledge of finance, business or economics. The top four students from each class will be awarded a partial college scholarship ranging from $500 to $1,000.
The Museum is thankful to ING for its support of this program.
