Bright Values: Save Carefully
A Value We Are Continuously Learning
One reason Lois and Dale Bright were able to make significant investments over time was their decision to save carefully, when and where they could. Today, one of the main goals for our scholarships is that recipients graduate without student loan debt. It is our hope that they, too, will be able to save carefully when they launch their careers.
In the meantime, we know scholars are regularly working through budgets and figuring out expenses beyond what scholarships can cover. We also recognize that the current COVID-19 pandemic has added additional financial struggles for many. Saying “Save Carefully” is often easier said than done, especially now.
Scholars continuously learn and apply financial literacy skills. We have been amazed with some of the things they have been able to make happen while still in college due to their careful budgeting, planning, and saving when and where they could.
