The NYC Kids RISE Save for College Program provides families, schools, and communities with a way to work together to save for their children’s futures. It’s a scholarship and savings program designed to make college and career training more accessible and achievable for all NYC public school students in kindergarten—regardless of their family’s income or immigration status.
By providing upfront scholarships for every eligible student, tools, and information for families to develop their own college and career savings plans, and a way for entire communities to invest in their children, the Save for College Program enables all of us to work together to build assets and support expectations of educational and economic success for every child.
Good news! Families who did not OPT out of the program will be receiving a Welcome Kit in late spring by mail to begin to activate their child's account.
