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 are two easy ways to opt-in to receiving the grant:



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
