Earn to Learn is a collaborative effort between the Arizona Board of Regents, Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, and the University of Arizona. Eligible students who save $500 and are admitted to one of these schools are eligible for a university match of $4,000. The universities work with Earn to Learn to apply for funds through Assets for Independence, a program of the Department of Health and Human Services. These funds help support half of the total match. University partners also promote Earn to Learn among the student population, provide free workspace for staff, and collaborate strategically on the design of the program. Earn to Learn would be impossible without the collaboration and support of these amazing institutions of higher learning.
