College Financial aid and literacy program

Ruchis Blueprint addresses the educational gap faced by underserved high school students in Chicago with respect to the college financial aid process. Her Blueprint aims to bridge this gap through curriculum development with Moneythink, a national financial literacy and entrepreneurship focused co-curricular program serving disadvantaged schools in the United States major metropolitan areas. Her vision is for students in underserved communities to leave high schools with the knowledge and tools to make college an affordable reality for themselves. She will expand her reach to any schools where Moneythink teaches and is targeting schools that do not have college counselors (or college counselors with substantial knowledge) so that students are aware of more opportunities.
