nominate a student saver
Being a smart Student Saver is more valuable than ever! 8 Cents in a Jar wants to encourage students to save by offering the Quarterly Student Saver Stipend. Each quarter, 8 Cents in a Jar will reward a student between the ages of 8 and 28 for saving money and help them achieve specific savings goals by contributing $25 to their savings jar.
Saving money is one of the most critical aspects of building wealth and having a secure financial foundation. Yet, many adults haven't developed the necessary skills to save for long-term needs and miss out on the wonders of compound interest. That is why 8 Cents in a Jar teaches financial education starting at the age of 8 to build habits now that will ensure a prosperous financial future.
Graduating from high school or college takes a lot of work (like a lot of work) and everyone has a different graduating experience. Add COVID to the mist and would be a joyous time that can turn into a stressful time for the class of 2021.
Therefore, we want to hear from you and give you a chance to tell your graduation story! Whether it is good or bad, long or short, we want to give you the opportunity to express yourself. As a token of appreciation, we will award two winners to receive an $800 prize with no strings attached. Spend (or save) the money how you see fit.
receive a student stipend
For students to receive a high paying job, you need work experience, to get work experience, you need a job. That's the never-ending cycle many students find themselves in while in high school or as they graduate college.
8 Cents in a Jar Student Stipend program allow high school and college students, alongside those who aren’t currently enrolled, to gain knowledge to otherwise challenging industries. While internships usually take place within the confines of an academic program and help students learn about a role within their selected major, our student stipend program is a great option for students who aren’t quite certain about their path or passion but want to try out a couple of options before making a decision while receiving a stipend.
This is a self-paced exploratory opportunity that allows autonomy to complete projects within a specific time frame. No G.P.A requirements to apply.
