NYC Kids RISE Save for College Program

NYCDOE has partnered with the nonprofit NYC Kids RISE on the NYC Kids RISE Save for College Program. This free program gives qualifying students an NYC Scholarship Account with money for qualified college and career training costs. NYC Kids RISE will open an account in the name of each student and deposit $100 in each account. In addition to this initial deposit, NYC Kids RISE engages communities in raising funds each year for the scholarship accounts. Since the program began in 2017, NYC Kids RISE, community partners, local businesses, neighbors, and others have fundraised and deposited over $2.4 million dollars for the future college and career training costs of participating students. Visit http://nyckidsrise.org to learn more about the Save for College Program.
