Powercat Financial now accepting student applications

By Jodi Kaus

Help K-State's Powercat Financial program identify students who should apply to be a peer financial counselors or Powercat Financial Student Advisory Board member.

Student Advisory Board members help market Powercat Financial and create fun campus events about financial literacy like "Thrifty Gifting," and "Spring Break! NOT Spring Broke!" Any major may apply to the Powercat Financial Student Advisory Board.

Peer financial counselors provide individual counseling and financial presentations to students after a semesterlong training session. Applicants must be in a financial-related major and should demonstrate an interest in increasing the financial literacy of fellow students and educating others by sharing in knowledge learned through the process of training and their coursework. This position comes with commitment and responsibility as well as great experience and exposure for the counselor along the way. Counselors will receive compensation once training requirements are complete. Approximately 12 students serve as peer financial counselors during an academic year.

Applications and information about these two Powercat Financial student involvement opportunities can be obtained on the Powercat Financial website. Applications for both positions will be due to the Powercat Financial  office in 302 K-State Student Union by March 1.

Please call Jodi Kaus, Powercat Financial director, at 785-532-2889 if you have any questions about these exceptional student opportunities.
