"The MAX Program has been a great help in figuring out my finances. Specifically, information on budgeting everyday expenses has been very helpful since it is the first time I have been more than 100 miles away from home and was unsure where to start. The scholarship award will help me with books and other costs related to next semester. A huge thank you to AccessLex for the workshops and online exercises."

“I am very thankful to AccessLex, not only for the scholarship opportunity, but for the financial literacy resources provided. School can be a very stressful time in our life, especially with the knowledge of looming tuition and costs associated with the endeavor. As such, it is a relief to have free financial education and support. It is because of AccessLex that I feel confident, informed, and prepared.”

“I was introduced to the MAX program in the beginning of my 1L year. Since then, I’ve been to several MAX Talks, and I always leave with a useful new tidbit. I especially liked a talk that was given at my school about negotiating job offers, as I didn’t know that that was really an option before. The online MAX lessons have given me a useful refresher of budgeting, financial planning, and using credit.

I’m SO excited to receive this scholarship, as I’ve been worrying about paying tuition, especially for mandatory summer classes for which I must pay by credit. I have three part time jobs to help pay for school, but now because of the scholarship, I’m much less stressed out about needing to work more hours to make more money. This scholarship made my year—THANK YOU! ”
