Make a difference with the Financial Well-being Ambassador Program

Submitted by Jaden Blansett

FWA Flyer

A new initiative is offering a unique opportunity for faculty members to contribute to the holistic development of our students: the Financial Well-being Ambassador, or FWA, Program.

The program is designed to empower students with essential financial skills, enabling them to make informed decisions about their personal finances and create a strong foundation for their future and ability to help fellow students on campus. We believe that faculty members play a pivotal role in shaping well-rounded individuals, and your involvement in this program can greatly impact our students' financial well-being.

Why should you get involved?

  • Nurturing student success: Equipping students with financial knowledge and skills enhances their overall well-being and supports their academic success.
  • Practical skill development: By participating in the FWA Program, students are equipped with practical skills that can benefit them throughout their lives.
  • Campuswide impact: Your involvement contributes to a culture of financial wellness, benefiting the entire K-State community.

How can you contribute?

  • Recommend students: Encourage students to apply for the FWA Program and make a difference in the lives of their peers.
  • Share your insights: Offer to share your financial experiences or insights in workshops or seminars, enriching the program's educational content or request a Powercat Financial peer-led workshop
  • Support outreach: Help spread the word about the FWA Program to students who could benefit from its offerings.

Please show interested students where they can apply at: k-state.edu/powercatfinancial/advisory-board-application.html

Together, we can create a more financially empowered and resilient K-State community. Your guidance and support will be invaluable in ensuring that our students are equipped to navigate their financial futures with confidence.

Thank you for your commitment to the development of our students.
