Great news for Acorn Fund account holders who graduated high school in 2016, 2017 or 2018 — the application period for Acorn Fund Graduation Bonus Awards, which provide up to $1,000 to eligible Acorn Fund account holders, is open again!
Students who have Acorn Fund accounts and graduated from high school in 2016-2018 may apply for a one-time Graduation Bonus Award and receive an additional contribution to their Acorn Fund account. Once approved, those who graduated in 2018 and 2017 will receive $500, and 2016 graduates will receive $1000! The 2016 graduates, who enrolled as seniors during our very first year of offering college savings accounts to Salem students, are receiving a larger award because they did not have the same opportunity to get further contributions into their Acorn Fund accounts as students in earlier grades get now.
Acorn Fund graduates who want to use their Graduation Bonus Award to pay for college expenses in the 2019 Summer Semester must apply by March 15, 2019. For those who wish to use their Graduation Bonus for a later semester, there is no deadline at this time.
