When it comes to saving money for education, there are 2 important rules of thumb. First, it's never too early to start. Second, you should look for help every place you can find it. That's where the 2021 CHET Dream Big! Competition comes in (formerly known as CHET Advance Scholarship for High School Seniors).

We'll award 80 prizes to Connecticut students graduating from high school in 2022 with a GPA of at least 2.0-5 winners will receive $5,000, with another 75 winners receiving $1,000.
