SAVE FOR SUCCESS
The resources you need to succeed
SAVE FOR SUCCESS is an exciting new five-year venture between PathStone Corporation, Monroe Community College, and ESL Federal Credit Union. The program allows eligible students from the Rochester and Finger Lakes region a chance to invest in their futures. Students that save up to $375 will have those savings matched 8-to-1 for a tuition grant of $3,000 at MCC. If you qualify you will also receive one-on-one financial and life skills counseling from a professional mentor. This program can help you pay for tuition, book, and other educational expenses. If you’re willing to work, SAVE FOR SUCCESS is for you!
THE 8-1 MATCH: HOW DOES IT WORK
Each SAVE FOR SUCCESS student will be provided an ESL Federal Credit Union College Fund Savings Account to save for tuition and education-related expenses. Program participants MUST invest UP TO $375 of earned income over the course of 18 months. Once the student has been accepted at MCC, SAVE FOR SUCCESS will match the student savings 8-to-1 at a max of $3,000. Students that max out will have $3,375. This combined account will offset the cost of tuition, books and other educational essentials.
SAVE FOR SUCCESS is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the generous private support from our community.
