CHET Baby Scholars Program

Children may be eligible to receive up to $250 in grant money through the state of Connecticut’s CHET Baby Scholars Program.

Eligible Children:*

  1. Those who are less than 1-year old 
  2. Adopted children who have not yet celebrated their one-year adoption

* Children must be residents of Connecticut at the time a CHET Baby Scholars Enrollment Form is submitted on the child’s behalf.

What You Need To Do:

To receive grant money through the CHET Baby Scholars Program, a child must meet the criteria above and be named beneficiary of a CHET Advisor college savings plan. If the CHET Advisor account is opened with a minimum of $150, the state of Connecticut will deposit $250 into the account. If the account is opened with less than $150 (the minimum initial contribution for CHET Advisor is $50) then an initial grant of $100 will be awarded. If $150 is contributed (not including the $100 grant) to the account before the beneficiary’s fourth birthday or adoption anniversary, then an additional grant of $150 will be awarded by the state.

Your financial professional can help you get started by helping you complete the CHET Advisor Account Application along with the CHET Advisor Baby Scholars Grant Enrollment Form. Talk to your financial professional about setting up a CHET Advisor account today!
