Nevada kindergartners eligible for $50 scholarship, savings account
Parents of Nevada kindergartners who attend public school are automatically eligible for $50 and a savings account for their child’s education after high school.
The Nevada College Kick Start Program, offered through the Nevada State Treasurer’s Office, creates a qualified savings account for every public school kindergartner in the state.
