Attention All County Employees!
The deadline for your high school senior is fast approaching. If you’re interested in possibly receiving funds to assist with your senior’s educational costs, please submit the application by March 6, 2016.
Nationwide and NACo College Scholarship
Drive your future forward. (And theirs too).
Your high school senior can be awarded $2,500 for college.
You may not have thought about it, but you're in a race against time to get ready to retire. The good news is: participating in your employer's retirement plan puts you in the driver's seat. As in any race, how well you do depends on knowing when to accelerate, how to get around obstacles and what to do as you near the finish line.
Nationwide and the National Association of Counties (NACo) want high school seniors to understand how important it is to start saving early to be ready for retirement.
To help them get started toward that goal, Nationwide will give four NACo college scholarships-each worth $2,500-to four high school seniors whose parent or grandparent participates in a 457 plan within the NACo Deferred Compensation Program. Throughout their 34-year relationship, Nationwide and NACo have been committed to helping you plan for your retirement as well as your family's future.
How to apply
Complete an online application. As part of the application, your high school senior will be asked to write a short essay. Please keep the response to 500 words or fewer, and the student should answer in her or his own words.
Upon entering the workforce, what would convince you to start saving now for retirement? Consider not only the reasons why, but the communication methods that would be most effective to receive this information.
