During their three-year research project, the authors found that most practitioners, researchers, and policymakers in the education field were not familiar with Individual Development Accounts (IDAs) or the existing research on IDAs. Therefore, in this paper the authors compiled a list of some of the references that they found useful and that they believe will help to learn more about IDAs. To begin, an IDA is a matched savings account for low-income students to save toward postsecondary education. In addition to match savings the IDA includes financial literacy education, asset-specific education, and case management.
