21 Savage Starts Virtual Financial Literacy Program With $100,000 in Scholarships

21 Savage might drop knowledge on the difference between snitches and rats on his albums, but he also wants to drop some knowledge on financial literacy too.

The Savage Mode II rapper recently partnered with financial services company, Chime, to start a new, six-course, online financial literacy program. The program is aimed towards high school students and will give 100 high school students $1,000 scholarships who complete the program.

Lessons will be offered in English and Spanish and will cover banking, budgeting, credit scores, and more. In order to win the $1,000 scholarship, high schoolers must write an essay upon completion before Dec. 4.

“I’m happy to team up with Chime to make this year’s Bank Account Campaign bigger than ever with a new national financial literacy and scholarship program,” 21 said in a press release. “I’ve been an advocate for financial literacy because I believe it can help free youth to focus on the more important things in life.”
