CHET Baby Scholars

Get up to a $250 bonus to jump start college savings for your baby residing in Connecticut. It's fast and easy.


The gift of college savings is waiting for Connecticut residents

Who's eligible

  • Babies less than a year old who reside in Connecticut
  • Adopted children who reside in Connecticut and have not reached the 1-year anniversary of their adoption

How to claim your $250 bonus

  • Open your account, get $100: Just open your CHET account and the State of Connecticut will automatically deposit $100 into your account—with no contribution required from you.
  • Contribute $150, get an additional $150 match: At any time before the child turns 4 years old, once you contribute your own $150 to the account (earnings growth does not count toward your $150), the State of Connecticut will match it with an additional $150 contribution. That's $250 in savings toward the child's education.
