About Us

Meet the team behind the award-winning financial literacy platform, iGrad.

Our Story

In 2009, a group of financial aid professionals decided to tackle the alarming lack of financial capability among college students. Our sole mission is to empower this population to effectively manage their money, limit and repay their debts, and begin successful careers.

Today, iGrad serves over 1.2 million students across 500 schools and organizations around the country. Our award-winning platform equips students with the tools needed to succeed in the real world of personal finance.
