FSC subsidizes college campus financial literacy activities

To help college students attain a better understanding of financial matters, promote increased financial knowledge at a younger age, and instill among students a proper understanding of financial matters, the FSC has adopted a set of subsidization guidelines to encourage domestic colleges and their campus organizations or academic departments to hold financial literacy activities. From the time the program was launched in July 2006 up through the end of June 2009, the FSC provided subsidies totaling more than NT$4.432 million for 183 financial literacy activities at 87 different schools. There were including workshops and competitions, as well as tours and games on the FSC''s MoneyWise website designed to impart knowledge in an entertaining way. An important goal of the three-year program was to expand participation in the activities to include local communities, to tap into community resources, and to do a strong job with financial literacy in the schools. The program has now moved on to a second three-year phase, in which there will be a special focus on elementary and secondary students as well as people living in remote areas. We hope that junior colleges and universities will continue to participate actively to further raise the level of financial literacy in schools and local communities.
