As South Carolina State Treasurer, one of my top priorities continues to be helping our children achieve success. That’s why I am proud to administer the Future Scholar 529 College Savings Plan, working in partnership with Columbia Threadneedle Investments. Future Scholar gives South Carolina’s children a path to fulfilling their college dreams.

Sponsored by the State of South Carolina and administered by the State Treasurer’s Office, Future Scholar is the smart, easy way to save for college. When South Carolina taxpayers save with the Plan, they enjoy federal and state tax benefits and low fees. What’s more, Future Scholar is recognized as an industry leader in performance. Over the years, it has consistently received high rankings from Morningstar Fund Research and Savingforcollege.com.

The value of a college education is undeniable, and we know families benefit when they have an investment vehicle to help maximize their hard-earned savings. Future Scholar offers a way to grow savings now to meet college expenses when that important time comes. I encourage you to learn more about Future Scholar.
