for School Partner
Welcome to the NYC Kids RISE Save for College Program!
We created this scholarship and savings program to make college more accessible and achievable for every NYC public school student.
School staff—including College Savings Liaisons, Secretaries, and Kindergarten Teachers—are key partners in the NYC Kids RISE Save for College Program.
We are thrilled that District 30 has been chosen as the first school district to participate in the Save for College Program. We look forward to continuing to build this program with you. In the coming months and years, continue to visit this website for more information about the Save for College Program, financial education and empowerment curricula, success stories and best practices from participating schools, program policies, and other useful information.
Together, we can take small steps to big college dreams.

Save for College Program
A new scholarship + savings program in District 30,
designed to make college more accessible and achievable
for all NYC public school students
College is the most direct pathway to success. This is why the non-profit NYC Kids RISE, in collaboration with the City of New York and the NYC Department of Education, has started the NYC Kids RISE Save for College Program, a scholarship and savings program designed to make college more accessible and achievable for the children in your community. The Save for College Program provides families, schools, and
communities with a way to work together to save for their children’s futures.
College savings programs show real promise in getting more students to attend and complete higher education. District 30 schools will play a key role in the design and support of the Save for College Program, helping shape the future of this exciting project.
Drawing on the experience of other programs, we know that families are more likely to engage with the Save for College Program and begin thinking about and saving for college when school staff convey the importance of the program and its goals.
NYC Kids RISE hopes that the Save for College Program will be an additional tool that school administrators, teachers, and parents can use to support the Chancellor’s vision of Equity and Excellence while reinforcing student aspirations for college.
