Student U is partnering with the Latino Community Credit Union (LCCU) to open College Savings Accounts for all of our middle school students. We want our students to be academically and financially prepared for college!
As a part of this program, families may open a savings account with LCCU and deposit money into the student’s account. Student U will match funds up to $100.00 for students who save $200 and contribute $50 if students meet participation requirements (listed below), each year. Funds may be taken out after a students’ graduation from high school to be used towards college/post-secondary education expenses.
If all requirements and savings are met, from 6th grade through 12th grade, each student will have $2550.00 saved for their first year of college.
