NEWPORT BEACH, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 5, 2021 / TGR Foundation, A Tiger Woods Charity, Announces New Learn & Earn CourseMT application. The “How to Find Scholarships” course is designed to help students with this essential aspect of the college application process. When students successfully complete the scholarship course on their smartphones, they will earn real money which will then be invested in stock market portfolios in their name.
“For 25 years, the TGR Foundation has been committed to providing educational programs to underserved students,” said Gordon McNeill, President and CEO. “Our Learn & Earn scholarship is a natural extension of the college access and STEM programs we offer. We are excited to share “How to Find Scholarships” with students who need support and guidance on their path to personal and professional success. “
The Learn & Earn app was developed by game company Blast in collaboration with Junior Achievement USA. By using Learn & Earn, students earn real money after successfully completing each course.

The courses cover a wide range of topics such as financial literacy, potential careers, and life skills that aim to help students grow into successful adults.
More than a billion children around the world have been affected by school closures caused by the pandemic. The TGR Foundation course will aim to reach some of these students, especially those from low-income households. Students with higher education savings accounts, like the investment account offered by the app, are four times more likely to graduate from college.

Learn & Earn allows students to select small-sized courses and earn money from sponsors and parents after each course is successfully completed. Students then invest this money in their investment account with Robo-Bumpers ™ to keep their portfolio diversified and growing over time. Students have a “core” portfolio of the world’s largest diversified ETFs, and they can also select up to ten separate large-cap stocks or ETFs from an organized “Explore” portfolio. This allows students to invest in fractions of shares of companies like Apple, Tesla, Amazon and many more. Sponsored courses are funded by both for-profit and not-for-profit entities.
Learn & Earn is supported and advised by companies such as Franklin Templeton Investments and Roth Capital Partners. Advisors include Dr Richard Thaler, Nobel Prize-winning economist; Dr. William Elliott III, founder and director of the Center on Assets, Education, and Inclusion at the University of Michigan; and Jon Fee, senior vice president and head of global marketing for Saleforce.org.
