The AZ529 Education Savings Plan is a designated account to save for qualified higher education expenses. Contributions to this account grow on a tax-free basis. Funds in an AZ529 account can be used for tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, a computer, internet services, and other related educational expenses.

If your child wins, you will receive a $529 voucher towards an AZ529 Education Savings 529 Plan. AZ529 funds can be used to pay for higher education institutions across the country and some schools abroad. There is no obligation to use the winning funds at a specific vocational school, college or university.

AZ529 funds can be used for education expenses including tuition and fees, book and supplies, and equipment for an accredited postsecondary institution or participation in an apprenticeship program registered and certified with the Secretary of Labor under section 1 of the National Apprenticeship Act. AZ529 account funds can also be used for qualified student loan repayments, up to a lifetime maximum of $10,000 per beneficiary. Students who are enrolled at least half-time may use AZ529 account funds for room and board expenses.
