Top Five Resources in Rosen’s Financial Literacy Database

  1. Saving and Paying for College – This resource is packed full of valuable information for students considering college after high school. It dives into the costs of college, applying for financial aid, getting student loans (and how to pay them back) and work-study or co-op programs. It even provides a short list of grant and scholarship opportunities for students to look into.
  2. Understanding Credit Cards – Credit cards always seem great when you get one and then the first bill comes! These tips help students understand credit, online bill paying and the fine print of credit cards to help utilize them without raking up debt.
  3. Resume, Application and Interviewing Skills – Prepare students to enter the workforce and find a job they enjoy. Resources include where to look for jobs, how to write resumes and what to do to prepare for a job interview. Be sure to highlight the section on Managing Your Online Reputation to ensure best practices in today’s digital world.
  4. Budgeting and Money Management – Learning budgeting skills early on can prevent a lot of trouble in the future! Dive into sections like Planning for Expenses, Savings Accounts, 10 Great Questions to Ask Yourself about Budging and Myths and Facts About Budgeting. These resources are great for preparing students to become independent and financially responsible adults.
  5. Developing a Business Plan – There are several interactive tools on the site, but one of our favorites is developing a digital business plan. This resource will help students develop an idea for a new product or service and create the ultimate business plan with step-by-step instructions along the way.

This is only a short list of the valuable tools and resources provided in the Financial Literacy database. Be sure to log in and look around for more articles that explore macro-, micro- and global economics as well as personal and household finance.
