The state of Maryland and Maryland 529 (formerly College Savings Plans of Maryland) are teaming up to help make it easier for children to attend college: Simply open an account in the Maryland College Investment Plan, which is managed by T. Rowe Price, and you could be eligible for a $250 contribution from the state.

Your savings can be applied to tuition at most U.S. colleges and technical or trade schools—and even international universities that have a federal school code.

A 529 plan is a tax-advantaged investment plan designed to allow adults or children to save for higher education expenses and is named after the section of the Internal Revenue Code that created it.
