In addition to thinking about your retirement needs, we find that it is common for grandparents to want to help fund their grandchildren’s college education as well. If possible financially, helping to fund your grandchild’s college offers a great way to invest in your grandchild’s future and help them with the ever-growing costs of a college education.
I recently graduated from Bentley University this past May. While completing my undergrad, I had the opportunity to spend a semester studying abroad in Barcelona, Spain. My time in Spain exposed me to major courses in a different environment (International Finance for me), while also creating lifetime memories and lasting relationships along the way.
After just graduating college this past May, I look back at my time in high school, and there aren’t too many things I would do differently. But if I could go back and make a change, at the top of this list would certainly be taking more Advanced Placement (AP) courses and their exams back in high school.
