Are you a parent or a grandparent of a child under 13 who lives in the State of Nevada? 

If so, the State of Nevada Treasurer’s Office has a college savings program that matches contributions into an SSGA Upromise 529 college savings account dollar-for-dollar up to $300 per year for up to five years!  That’s right, $1,500 in FREE MONEY for college over five years, per beneficiary!

The 2022 online application period for the Silver State Matching Grant closes July 31, 2022.

 You must apply/reapply in your SSGA Upromise account and qualify each year for each beneficiary to be considered for the grant. Funds are limited and are awarded on a first come first serve basis, so don’t delay!

Do you qualify?

  • Both you and the beneficiary must be Nevada residents.
  • You must be the account owner of an SSGA Upromise 529 account (you may open one now to become eligible).
  • The beneficiary must be 13 or younger as of December 31 of the first year the account owner applies for the Silver State Matching Grant funding.
  • Your household adjusted gross income must not exceed $74,999.

Remember, every dollar saved today is one less you may have to borrow to allow your child to pursue postsecondary education in the future.
