You must apply/reapply in your SSGA Upromise account and qualify each year for each beneficiary to be considered for the grant. Funds are limited and are awarded on a first come first serve basis, so don’t delay!

  • Both you and the beneficiary must be Nevada residents.
  • You must be the account owner of an SSGA Upromise 529 account (you can open one now to become eligible.)
  • The beneficiary must be 13 or younger as of December 31 of the first year the account owner applies for the Silver State Matching Grant funding.
