Families seeking funding for post-secondary education are being advised to apply early.

A reminder is being sent out from Heritage Educational Funds International to help ensure no one misses out.

The company has paid out $3.62 million over the past year to the Island’s residents and provides an Education Savings Plan for Bermudian families to save for their children’s education after high school.

“With rising education costs, the prospect of tuition fees can be daunting for many families,” said Jason Maguire, the president and chief executive of Heritage Education Funds International.

“But cost shouldn’t restrict our children from getting the education they deserve. At Heritage, we are dedicated to helping families prepare for this cost.

“We are proud to offer safe and flexible solutions that enable families to send their children to the institution of their choice to build a solid future for themselves.”

Children up to the age of 13 are eligible for enrolment in a Heritage Education Savings Plan (ESP).
