Financial Literacy Programs

The Morgan Franklin Financial Literacy Programs offers the opportunity to learn fundamental financial literacy concepts.

Each of the Morgan Franklin Fellowship Financial Literacy (FL) Program is comprised of three courses (FL1, FL2 & FL3) with lessons ranging from budgeting to managing credit to financial planning. To view the syllabus for each course, click here.

The FL Programs are designed to be completed within a three to nine month timeframe, however the program is online and self-paced. It is up to the learner (or associated school, business, or organization) how quickly they move through the program.

The FL Programs are designed to merge into the timetable of learners with rigorous schedules, whether academic, work or extra-curricular activities.

All Learners who fulfill the requirements of their FL Program earn the title of a MFF “Financial Fellow”. Financial Fellows are afforded the opportunity to apply to our hands-on learning programs including MFF’s Investment Program.
