Helping to make private college education more affordable.

Since 1995, SAGE Scholars has bridged the gap between students who want a quality private college education and colleges that will work closely with member families to ensure affordability — all at no cost to the student, family, or college.

As the nation’s oldest and largest private college preparation and funding organization, Tuition Rewards® provides families a guaranteed tuition reduction of up to 25%. In the last year, Tuition Rewards has guaranteed families savings of over $98M in tuition.

Saving for college is one of the biggest challenges families face today. The SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards program reduces financial stress and provides a simple and effective way for your family to send a child or loved one to college.

Once enrolled, sponsors and students earn SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards Points to help offset the financial burdens of a four-year undergraduate degree at a SAGE Scholars member colleges and universities.

Northland College

A liberal arts college with a unique, practical, career-oriented environmental mission, Northland College (Ashland, WI) is located on the south shore of Lake Superior, the world's largest freshwater lake.

Designing instructional and recreation programs that take full advantage of one of America's most beautiful college locations, Northland was a pioneer in adopting its environmental mission in 1971. For the past 40 years, Northland has remained in the forefront of innovation by integrating environmental concerns into academic and co-curricular programs - and by incorporating energy efficiency, sustainability and reuse standards in facility design and operations.

Faculty focused on real-world instruction and mentoring provide students with personal attention and hands-on learning approaches that extend well beyond formal classroom settings. Students develop practical, career-oriented skills that prepare them well for graduate study or the world of work.

Northland College was recently named the America's 4th most bike-friendly campus (by onlineuniversities.com), the 7th "coolest" school for its efforts to stop global warming and operate sustainably (Sierra magazine), one of America's greenest colleges and universities (Forbes Magazine) and the 3rd best college town in America for hunting and fishing (Outdoor Life Magazine).
