SPECIAL PROGRAM FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS
It is well recognized that getting some form of education beyond high school can have long term positive financial benefits. Yet these days it is becoming harder and harder for those lacking deep family pockets to afford to go to school. Therefore, SCC has designed an initial program to provide a bit more assistance to those whose are trying to pursue those paths.
In addition to the default signup bonus of 50 units of a complementary currency that every new account holder will receive, we will provide an addition 50 unit bonus to enrolled college or trade schools students. Beyond that, we will also provide them with a monthly scholarship grant of 50 additional units, while they are still in school.
To sign up and receive a one-time grant of 100 units of their state currency plus a monthly scholarship grant of 50 units, students are required to enroll using the below Create Your Account button. When you select that button you will be taken to the UNIEX bank site where you will be required to provide the normal account holder information required of all new users, plus the school you are enrolled in, your major, year of study and school email address.
Once enrolled you will be able to buy and sell goods and services on your state’s marketplace (see Postings) as well as recruit others in your personal network to sign up and earn a commission each time those referrals purchase the currency (see Social Media Affiliates).
WHY COLLEGE STUDENTS?
Besides the financial benefit to the students described above, there are other reasons why we have focused on college students. One of our chief goals in deploying the SCF program is to help lift up regional economies throughout our country and elsewhere throughout the world, as broadly and as rapidly as we can. The more people that join in that effort, the greater the benefit for all.
The whole system becomes vital and healthy the faster we can make it grow. That led us to look for large blocks of individuals who could be motivated to join en masse. College students represent such a group. And given that most college students today have grown up in a digital world and are already familiar with alternative payment systems (PayPal, Venmo, Apple Pay, etc.), they can become natural adopters helping to lead the rest of society in embracing the concept. As a group, they will require little convincing, unlike many older adults.
Fortunately there are some long standing examples of college students that have successfully used complementary currencies at their colleges. We have captured those examples and built on them to establish a coordinated program that can be launched at individual schools and colleges. See this detailed document for more information. It provides a roadmap has students can join forces on their campus to establish mass adoption.
