The Education Plan, New Mexico’s 529 college savings plan, is proud to congratulate New Mexico students awarded the 2020 National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) Outstanding Achievement Award!
This marks the fifth year that 500 NJHS students from across the country were selected to receive $500 scholarship awards in the form of 529 accounts with The Education Plan. To date, almost $1.25 million in scholarships have been awarded to nearly 2,500 middle school students around the country.
