(SAVANNAH, G.a.) The Georgia STABLE/Path2College Matching Scholarship’s deadline to apply is fast approaching with less than two months to apply.
The Georgia STABLE/Path2College Matching Scholarship initiative is designed to assist families in saving for their child’s future education expenses. If your child is 18 or under, you can apply for this program and receive matching funds of up to $2,500 when you make net contributions to the child’s Georgia STABLE account from July 1 through Dec. 31, 2023.
Every dollar saved in the child’s Georgia STABLE account can be matched and deposited into the child’s Path2College 529 savings plan, effectively doubling their savings. Matching Scholarships will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis for new or existing Georgia STABLE account owners who apply by entering the scholarship promotion code “MATCH2023” through their Georgia STABLE account.
Applying for the program is simple and can be done in a few easy steps:
Sign in or open the child’s Georgia STABLE account at https://georgiastable.com/gateway.
Enter the scholarship promotion code “MATCH2023” through the child’s Georgia STABLE account.
Make contributions to the child’s Georgia STABLE account.
We will match net contributions less any withdrawals made from July 1 through Dec. 31, 2023.
