This may be funds for universities, colleges, professional schools, technical colleges, graduate programs across the country and even at some institutions abroad.
The program does not have any application, sales, or maintenance fees. It does have a wide range of investment options. It can also provide tax deductions for Wisconsin residents (limitations apply).
