Discover has made a five-year, $10 million investment in financial education to ensure that students get the information they need to manage money and achieve brighter financial futures. Through its financial education program, Pathway to Financial Success, the company will be providing grants to schools to cover the cost of implementing or enhancing a personal finance course; giving them access to a standards-based curriculum developed by the Council for Economic Education; and offering teachers the training they need to deliver it.

Discover is offering grants to public high schools that implement substantial and measurable financial education curriculum.
