The CHET Baby Scholars program provides up to $250 toward a newborn's future college costs.
- Babies who reside in Connecticut, who are less than a year old.
- Adopted children who reside in Connecticut, before the first anniversary of the adoption.

How does it work?
Once you open your account and enroll in CHET Baby Scholars, CHET will automatically deposit $100 into your account.
If the account is opened with $150 (or more) the full $250 match will be triggered. If you open your account with less than $150, your account will be reviewed on a quarterly basis. Once at least $150 in additional contributions is received into the account and before the child turns four, an additional $150 match will be triggered. Any earnings growth will not be counted toward the $150; the full $150 must be actual contributions.
