Free money for College with CalKids

The State of California has launched the California Kids Investment and Development Savings Program (CalKIDS) with the mission of making college more accessible for millions of children in the state. Automatically, every eligible low-income public school student in grades 1-12 in California will have a CalKIDS account created in their name with an initial seed deposit ranging from $500 to $1,500. The program is administered by the ScholarShare Investment Board, a California state agency that oversees ScholarShare 529, the state’s official 529 college savings plan.

Money provided through the CalKIDS program can be used at eligible educational institutions, including four-year colleges and universities, community colleges, technical schools or accredited institutions. CalKIDS participants and their families can also establish and contribute to individual ScholarShare 529 accounts, where they can contribute and start saving early. 


CalKIDS is the long awaited children's savings account program that offers all newborns and eligible low-income public school students in California between $25 and $1500 to start saving for college and career training. Families are encouraged to build on this investment by opening and contributing to a ScholarShare 529 account of their own and see their college savings balances all in one place. 


The program provides the following incentives:


Up to $1500 for 3.4 Million School-Age Children:


  • $500 Automatic Deposit: Eligible low-income public school students in grades 1-12.
