UESP celebrates College Savings Month with $8,000 in scholarships

The Utah Educational Savings Plan (UESP) and Zions First National Bank will award eight $1,000 UESP college savings scholarship accounts to celebrate Governor Gary Herbert’s declaration designating September as College Savings Month in Utah. These scholarship accounts will be given to the winners of the Make Your Mark Bookmark Contest, open during September to Utah students in kindergarten through grade 12.

With students across the state returning to school this fall, it’s an ideal time for Utah families to think about the importance of saving for college, and to discuss their progress toward meeting their college savings goals. As Utah’s official 529 college savings plan, UESP can help families accomplish these goals. Plan simplicity, high-quality investment options, and low costs have helped UESP maintain its top-ranked status and consistent growth. UESP currently holds more than $7.4 billion in assets under management in more than 259,000 accounts.
