About the Scholar Dollars Program
ScholarShare 529 is California’s official 529 college savings plan and is dedicated to ensuring that our state’s students are well-positioned to achieve great things. It’s why we support families in saving for the costs of higher education. And it’s why we have established the ScholarShare 529 Scholar Dollars award program to help fund public school programs that enrich students’ experiences. The main objective of this program is to generate engagement and meaningful conversation about the importance of attending and saving for higher education. We believe this program offers the perfect opportunity for collaboration between ScholarShare 529 and K-8 schools.
