CollegeBound Saver is a tax-advantaged savings plan that allows Rhode Islanders to save for college affordably and conveniently. Savings can be used at accredited colleges, universities, trade, and vocational schools worldwide, as well as for registered apprenticeship programs. Research indicates that children with college savings, even less than $500, are three times more likely to attend college and four times more likely to graduate.
