Save4College Program Accepting Applications for State Contribution to Education

| February 08, 2022, 01:30 PM

Maryland 529, administrator of the Maryland Senator Edward J. Kasemeyer College Investment Plan (Maryland College Investment Plan or MCIP) has announced that the application period for the 2022 Save4College State Contribution Program is now open.

Established in 2016, the Save4College State Contribution Program was designed to help families, especially those from low- and middle-income households, start saving for college, technical and trade schools, and certified apprenticeship programs for their children. Families that opened a Maryland College Investment Plan account after the State Contribution Program’s establishment may be eligible to receive a $250 or $500* contribution to their account from the State.

In December 2021, 24,056 eligible applications received a State contribution, with 57% of applications receiving a $500 contribution and 43% of applications receiving a $250 contribution, for a total of $10,970,500.

“As the Save4College State Contribution Program enters its sixth year of operations, we are grateful to Governor Hogan and the Maryland General Assembly for their continued support,” said Maryland 529 Executive Director, Erin Layton. “Whether a child is pursuing a college degree, a trade, or participating in an apprenticeship program, it is exciting to see Maryland families get a jump start in saving in this truly unique program.”

Since the first application period in 2017, over 89,000 eligible applications have received a $250 or $500 State contribution. To apply for the 2022 application period or for more information, visit www.maryland529.com/Save4College.
