IDA opens your educational options
Do you dream of going to college, completing professional training or learning a trade?
An Individual Development Account (IDA) can help.
By matching every dollar you save toward your education with an additional $3, the New Hampshire IDA Program puts your dream within reach.
You can use your IDA savings, plus the match money you earn, to pay for tuition, fees, books, supplies and/or equipment costs at an approved school or program.
You do not have to be enrolled in a degree or certificate program to be eligible.
An education IDA can help you:
- Cover some or all of the costs of attending school
- Fill the gap between the cost of your education and what is available to you through financial aid or scholarships
- Pay for classes if you won’t have federal financial aid
- Reduce your student loans
IDA funds cannot be used to make payments on existing student loans.
