Activate Your Child's NYC Scholarship Account Today

Dear Save for College Program Family,

Through a partnership with your child’s school, your child is one of over 13,000 children across Queens who is enrolled in the Save for College Program. Over 95% of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and 4th Graders in Queens have an NYC Scholarship Account with an initial deposit of $100 and we are excited that the Save for College Program has now expanded to include all kindergartners attending public school in NYC (including participating charter schools). We are saving for college together! Students in the Save for College Program have already received over $2.0 million in scholarship rewards. We are working together with you, your school and members of your community to ensure that your child has assets for college and career training.

Join other families who have taken this first step: Activate and view your child’s NYC Scholarship Account now to obtain up to $25 more in rewards!
