About this grant

The University of Kansas Center for Research, Inc., is the leading research organization examining the relationship between educational savings and education outcomes for children, particularly low- and moderate-income children. This grant increase will enable the grantee to expand its current research activities and begin collecting program data on select children’s savings account initiatives in the United States. This information, including total number of accounts as well as participation and savings levels, will provide practitioners and policymakers with important information about how these models are performing.
