The Missouri Department of Higher Education has awarded 18 Missouri colleges and universities, including Columbia College, with their Default Prevention Grant for the 2017-2018 academic year. The grant is given to schools to be used to promote financial literacy and help prevent students from defaulting on their student loans. Higher education institutions use the funding for programs, such as the college’s Money Stacks efforts, that focus on strengthening students’ money management skills.
