We welcome a collaboration with academic researchers and funders interested in studying the longitudinal impact of our program on students in the real world. Please contact us at Support@bcsim.com with the subject line "Research" if interested.
To support this important work we invite and welcome all students that complete Budget Challenge to join our Alumni Network where they can participate in our Fee Scout TM program. Fee Scout TM is a new tool that will help students track their progress against national benchmarks and recommended targets in the following 5 areas: Bank Fees, Credit Card Fees, Investing Fees, Savings Rate, and Credit Score. While we track students success in the real world after using Budget Challenge we can start to build solid evidence of the long-term impact of our program.
