First time ever offered to students of ALL grades and we want those students who are considering higher education to have every opportunity out there available.

Earning $500 has never been so easy. Just make a list of colleges and you’re on your way! No essay to write or no grade requirements, and no application to fill out.

It’s never too early to start planning and saving.
