October is being recognized as College Savings Month and College of Western Idaho (CWI) is partnering to promote resources available to help Idahoans save for college. In April, CWI announced an exciting agreement with the IDeal—Idaho 529 College Savings Program to create an innovative scholarship program. The scholarship, called “CWIDeal Boost,” provides matching funds provided by CWI to qualifying students who make tuition and fee payments to CWI directly from an IDeal 529 College Savings Account—up to $500 per semester or $1,500 per year.
IDeal is leading a month-long initiative to raise awareness about its program and how financial planning can help make college more attainable. To learn more about the IDeal program visit www.idsaves.org.
