Investment Products Offered By AllianceBernstein Investments

Every child born to or adopted by Rhode Island families on or after January 1, 2015 is eligible for a one-time $100 CollegeBoundbabySM Grant for higher education.

To receive the $100 CollegeBoundbaby grant, parents of newborns simply check “yes” on their in-hospital Birth Worksheet to allow the Rhode Island Office of Vital Records to release necessary information to The Office of the General Treasurer. The grant will be held and invested by The Office of the General Treasurer in a CollegeBoundfund master account until the child is ready to attend a higher education institution. Learn more.
