The State of Kansas wants all children to have an opportunity for a college education, including those from families who otherwise may not be able to afford it. That’s why Kansas is willing to match up to $600 of contributions into a Learning Quest account for families who qualify. If you start at birth, Kansas will contribute over $10,000 to your child’s education. Your investments are managed with the help of American Century Investments.
