Any public high school in the United States applying for the Pathway to Financial Success Grant must meet the following criteria:

  1. The school has implemented or is looking to implement a financial education curriculum;
  2. A measurement tool is or will be in place to assess participation in and comprehension of the financial education curriculum; and
  3. The school agrees to share overall results of the measurement tool’s pre and post-curriculum testing with Discover upon the program’s completion, to assess what worked and what didn’t.

Applications not meeting the criteria above will not be accepted. Special consideration is given to first time applicants and schools that have a stand-alone curriculum. Previous grant recipients must submit pre and post-testing results to be considered for subsequent grant.

Please consult with all appropriate school departments prior to submitting your grant application and budget. We are unable to make adjustments to fulfilled grant awards.

Application review process may take up to 60 days. If you have not received a response in your Pathway account, after 60 days, please contact us at

Please note that Pathway to Financial Success does not provide curriculum or testing assessments. Please work with your curriculum provider for these materials. If you are using the Council for Economic Education curriculum please contact Rosanna Castillo at for measurement tools and specific curriculum materials.
