Boost College Savings With a Baby Step

CollegeBoundbaby gives every child that’s born to or adopted by Rhode Island families a chance to receive a $100 grant to be used for future education expenses. It’s our commitment to helping you get a head start on saving for your kids.

There’s no catch or cost to receive a grant. There are two easy ways to opt-in.


Check the box on the Birth Certificate Worksheet at the hospital.


Complete and submit a CollegeBoundbaby Enrollment Form up to one year after your child’s birth or adoption.

Your $100 grant will be held in an account until your child is ready to attend a higher education institution. For more information, visit
