For the third consecutive year, TurboTax is proud to launch the #LeadingConEducación program created to empower students to pursue higher education and become the next generation of Latino professionals.
Here’s the story of one of the scholarship recipients out of the forty that received a scholarship grant in 2022, and highlight how this program has helped them in their education journey. This year in partnership with Everfi, we will provide 40 educational grants to high school seniors and college students seeking financial support. Don’t miss this great opportunity!
Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, Kailey was involved with the National Hispanic Institute throughout her high school years. There she developed her talent and passion for helping others which the senior staff noticed. They recommended she apply to the #LeadingConEducacion grant for additional financial support while pursuing her higher education. This year, she has used the grant for a study abroad program in Barcelona and is very excited about this next step in her educational journey. Kailey hopes to continue serving her community and to become an exceptional Latina professional.
Kailey strongly encourages Latino students around the USA to apply to grants like the #LeadingConEducación program.
“To all the students that don’t know what your future plans are going to hold, keep doing your best, apply for scholarships like these and BE EAGER TO LEARN!” – Kailey Kessler
Why Should You Apply?
We’re helping students develop the durable skills needed for jobs in a constantly changing economy. Intuit does this through its personal finance, entrepreneurship and career exploration programs which utilize products including TurboTax, Mint and QuickBooks. Through Intuit’s Job Readiness Program, Latino students have free access to tools and resources to overcome the fear of personal finances, prepare them to file taxes for the first time, and introduce them to additional tax information and tax simulations including gig-economy, crypto and other investment scenarios that will ensure they get the refund they deserve and the best tax outcome.
