South Carolina Future Scholar Scholarship Contest

South Carolina State Treasurer Curtis M. Loftis is committed to supporting a new generation of young people who take control of their finances and their future. A strong financial education helps each and every one of us to make better decisions. And it may even help us to positively influence friends and family around us.

We want to hear your story!


Submit a short blog post (300 words or less) that answers one of the following questions:

  • How has the Future Scholar Financial Literacy Program had an impact on your life and the decisions that you will make moving forward? Tell us one way that the program has changed your attitude or behavior.
  • What are your dreams for the future (college, travel, volunteering, pursuing your dream job)? How has the Future Scholar Financial Literacy Program helped prepare you to achieve those goals? Be specific.
  • Tell us about a financial mistake that you, or someone you know, has made. How would you change your actions based on what you now know through the Future Scholar Financial Literacy Program?
