CollegeBoundbaby is an enhancement of CollegeBound Saver and is designed to help Rhode Island families get an early start on saving for their children's higher education.
Every child born to or adopted by Rhode Island families is eligible for a $100 CollegeBoundbaby grant to be used for higher education.
The grant will be held and invested by the Office of the General Treasurer in a CollegeBound Saver master account on behalf of the child until the child is ready to attend a higher education institution.
Parents can easily apply for the grant when they check the box on the "Birth Worksheet" at the hospital or they can download, complete and return the form before their child's first birthday.
The grant is also available to Rhode Island residents who adopt a child and submit the enrollment form within one year of the child's adoption date.
Completed forms should be sent to:
Office of the General Treasurer
1 Capitol Hill, 4th Fl
Providence, RI 02908
