Through the scholarship, LendUp is looking to give back to the community and invest in future generations. Promoting educational opportunity is in LendUps DNA. They know that the college or university can be expensive, and to help the students with it, this scholarship has been designed. The mission of this scholarship is to provide anyone with a path to better financial health. They want to reduce the extra financial stress of the students and make education easy for them. Through this scholarship, the firm intends to award the students who share the mission of LendUp of developing society.
LendUp was founded with one clear, straightforward purpose to provide anyone with a better financial health path. They began a journey in 2011, knowing there was a massive hole in the financial services industry. Many Americans‘ credit needs simply weren’t being met. That’s why they offer access to loans without hidden fees or debt traps, affordable ways to build credit, break out of debt cycles, and achieve long-term financial goals. They provide access to credit education and other financial tools and resources to help people better manage their credit and plan for the future.
