FAME Offers Free Interactive Tool to Maine Schools that Gives Students an Edge on Future Earning Potential
FAME announced today it is making available to every Maine middle school a free interactive resource called Claim Your Future®, which takes the form of a game and is designed to encourage students to explore career options with an eye toward future earning potential and increased financial literacy.
FAME’s Board of Directors visited businesses and higher education institutions in Lincoln, Orono, and Bangor on October 14 and 15 to learn about their successes, needs and future plans.
MELA has been merged with FAME effective October 15, 2015. This will provide a convenient “one-stop” shopping experience for Maine students and their families for their higher education financing needs.
FAME continues to maintain impressively low cohort default rates for Maine student loan borrowers, despite increased borrowing and rising college costs.
