College Planning Initiatives
With its expertise in borrowing for college and repaying student loan debt, Iowa Student Loan looks for opportunities to educate Iowa's students and families on these important concepts before they begin to borrow.
- Save Now, Save Later: College Savings Plan Parent Giveaway. This drawing for deposits into College Savings Iowa accounts encourages parents to understand how they can assist their college-bound students with important college choices and set aside funds for education costs.
- Iowa Financial Know-How Challenge: Senior Scholarship. To further encourage college-bound high school seniors to increase their understanding of essential financial and borrowing concepts, Iowa Student Loan offers an annual scholarship competition. Scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate their understanding of important topics by scoring highest on an online assessment.
A corresponding award is presented to each scholarship recipient's high school.
