NYC Kids Rise College Savings Program
UPDATE: $40,060 saved as of 12/11/23!
All students in Grades 1 and 2 (unless their parents opted out) received an enrollment packet and have been funded for their FREE $100 NYC Kids Rise Scholarship account! PS 102 students already have saved $40,060 for college as of December 11, 2023! If you haven't already done so, please go to nyckidsrise.org to ACTIVATE your account. Incoming Kindergarten families (and grade 1 and 2 families new to NYCDOE this year) will receive information packets mailed to their home during NYC Kids Rise Scholarship Month in January 2024!
After activating the account and completing a quick survey - you will receive an additional $25 in the scholarship account. You will also be able to complete more activities for additional $25 bonuses - like opening or linking a private 529 savings account and adding any amount to that account. NYC Kids Rise even matches the first $100 you put in a linked account. If you have questions or need help to activate the account - please reach out to Ms. Sheri at any time.
