(MESA) Matched Education Savings Account

The Matched Education Savings Account program is dedicated to helping undergraduate students that reside and are enrolled in Idaho, Oregon, or Washington. MESA offers a matched 3:1 savings plan; students may save $500 for a $1,500 matched funds return, or $2,000 in total program savings. Credit unions are ideal financial institutions to hold matched savings accounts and provide students with relevant financial management services.
