In this episode of the Better Learning Podcast, host Kevin Stoller speaks with Joshua Samuel, Founder of Coins for College, about the importance of supplemental resources for socioeconomically disadvantaged students in accessing top colleges. Samuel introduces Coins for College, a platform where students can earn Scholarship Points through attendance, assessments, and supplemental learning. These Scholarship Points equal data points that colleges can use to make informed decisions on admissions and scholarship awards.
The discussion delves into how the Scholarship Points system works, how it can level the playing field for students who may not have had access to traditional resources, and how it can benefit colleges in creating a more diverse and inclusive student body. Samuel also shares his personal story and the inspiration behind creating Coins for College.
