First Steps Toward College
The State of California is committed to helping children thrive, particularly by increasing access to higher education.
Beginning later this year, the California Kids Investment and Development Savings program (CalKIDS) will provide each child born in California with a seed deposit and other financial rewards in a CalKIDS account.
Sign up here for updates on the development and upcoming launch of CalKIDS later this year, including important information about program eligibility and terms and conditions.
Children with $500 or less designated for college savings are 3x more likely to enroll in college and nearly 4X more likely to graduate than children with no savings.
