NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ramsey Solutions is giving away three $2,500 scholarships – one each month in April, May and June – for a total of $7,500 as a part of the Debt-Free Degree Scholarship Giveaway. Students classified as high school freshmen up to college seniors can enter by answering a series of questions at anthonyoneal.com. The scholarship giveaway is sponsored by Kaplan Test Prep, the world leader in standardized test prep.
The giveaway came about as a way to further serve students after Ramsey Personality Anthony ONeal published the #1 national best-selling book Debt-Free Degree: The Step-By-Step Guide to Getting Your Kid Through College Without Student Loans. ONeal is committed to helping students graduate from college debt-free.
“At the age of 19, I was homeless because I was deep in student loan and credit card debt. And I didn’t even have a degree to show for it. Young people today feel like student loans are the only way to go to college, but there’s a better way,” said ONeal. “Student loans are the easy button now, but they set you up for years of struggle. The average student takes almost 20 years to pay off their student loans. Debt doesn’t open doors. It closes them. With a little hard work, you can get a degree without debt, and that’s why we’re doing this scholarship giveaway. I want to help our young people win!”
Established more than 80 years ago, Kaplan has helped millions of students around the globe achieve their education and career goals by preparing them for success on high-stakes exams. Kaplan offers prep programs for more than 200 high school, undergraduate, graduate school and professional licensure tests, focusing on giving students the practice, strategy and confidence they need to succeed on test day.

“We’re excited to partner with Anthony ONeal and Ramsey Solutions to award these three scholarships to high school and college students, especially given the focus on raising financial literacy awareness and helping young people get and stay out of debt,” said Dan Wittich, Senior Director of Strategic Partnerships, Kaplan Test Prep. “With the cost of a college education continuing to rise and with so many families struggling to make ends meet in this COVID-19-impacted economy, we are proud to do our part to help students achieve greater financial security and set them up for success.”
