START NOW TO SAVE FOR YOUR CHILD'S FUTURE EDUCATION.
For most families, saving enough to pay for the costs of higher education can seem overwhelming. But with a little planning, funding a college education can be easier to achieve than you might think. Research shows that students from families who save even small amounts for college are three times more likely to go on to and complete college or other training. Plus, as you save with the Vermont Higher Education Investment Plan, you can benefit with a Vermont state income tax credit and other tax advantages.
Start saving now to make education opportunities possible for your children or loved ones.
