Debt.com Joins the Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration with a $1,000 Scholarship for Persistent Scholarship Applicants
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL - October 5, 2021 - (LATINX NEWSWIRE) – It’s that time of the year when we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15th to October 15th). Smart and innovative brands participate in various activities that may build and expand multicultural connections and deepen awareness of the cultural sensitivities of the Hispanic community.
During this period, besides creating YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram Live videos in Spanish to discuss and celebrate the Hispanic culture with its audience, Debt.com, in coordination with Debt.com en español, promotes a scholarship for Hispanic students in the United States (USA) and Puerto Rico (PR) during the year. The interesting part about the scholarship is that it rewards persistence and courage. Simply put, the student who seeks the most scholarships has the best chance of winning!
Our mission is to encourage people in the USA and PR to fight their way to financial independence – from college freshmen to senior citizens and everyone in between,” said Debt.com Chairman Howard Dvorkin, CPA.
“Sadly, many college students don’t apply for all the scholarships available to them. Therefore, through this scholarship, we want to encourage students to put in the hard work of applying to as many scholarships as they possibly can.”
The Federal Reserve estimates that in quarter two of 2021, Americans owed a startling $1.73 trillion in student loans, and that number only continues to increase. But unlike loans, which must be repaid with interest, grants and scholarships typically don’t require repayment.
There is always a silver lining, and just as the pandemic has taught Americans about the importance of financial preparedness, the student loan crisis can help us create better healthier habits to fight our way to financial independence,” added Dvorkin.
