Higher education costs can make earning a degree feel like a faraway goal, but credit unions are stepping up to help students achieve their educational aspirations through a partnership known as the Matched Education Savings Account (MESA).

We help credit unions offer this program when students face insufficient funding to complete their undergraduate degrees. MESA bridges the gap by matching a student’s education savings 3:1. Program participants can turn $500 into $1,500 and apply the funds toward books and tuition.

MESA equips students with the financial management and tools they need to build financial assets throughout their lifetimes.

Currently, MESA accounts are available at CapEd Credit Union:
