You May be Eligible to Receive up to $500 for College Savings through the Save4College State Contribution Program. Apply Today!

Did you know that families that save any amount of money for college-even less than $500-are three times more likely to enroll a child in college and four times more likely to see that child graduate than families that don't save anything 1?
 
The State of Maryland and Maryland 529 are teaming up to help make it easier for your child's dream of attending college to come true with the Save4College State Contribution Program 2. Simply open an account in the Maryland College Investment Plan (or commit to contributing to an account you opened after December 31, 2016), fill out an application, and you could be eligible for a $250 or $500 contribution towards colleges savings from the State of Maryland.  Your college savings can be applied to tuition and other eligible expenses at virtually any U.S. college, technical or trade school-and even international universities that have a federal school code.
 
It's easy to apply with the online application. VisitMaryland529.com/MDMatch250 to get started and see if you are eligible for the State contribution. Please note that, while the application can be initiated online, some of the required forms must be mailed. All Application materials must be submitted before June 1, 2018.
