The Problem: The cost of post-secondary education in Canada is high, student loans interest rates continue to rise every year and are amongst the highest student loan rates in the world. The cost of living in Canada has skyrocketed especially post COVID-19 quarantine with a rise in the cost of rent, food, gas, medical expenses, etc. The impact of financial difficulties leads to a decline in mental health, overall well being, strains on personal relationships and academic performance.

The Solution: FLIP is a website/app that delivers access to free financial assistance in the form of scholarships, grants, and bursaries available to post-secondary students in Canada. Billions of dollars in financial assistance is available to post-secondary students every year, but students are not aware  or don't know where to find access to these financial resources. Unlike student loans that are required to be paid back with high high interest rates, these student awards(scholarships, grants, and bursaries) are never required to be paid back. It is literally FREE MONEY!!
