Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast

Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast has partnered with SAGE Scholars to bring our members the Tuition Rewards program.

What are Tuition Rewards?
Tuition Rewards is a unique private college savings program offered by the Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast. Girl Scouts and their families can earn Tuition Rewards Points, which can be redeemed for guaranteed minimum college scholarships, starting with the freshman year, at over 440 participating SAGE Scholars private colleges & universities.

Once registered, Girl Scouts can earn Tuition Rewards Points through Girl Scout participation. Each Tuition Rewards Point represents a guaranteed minimum discount equivalent to one dollar, with a maximum discount of up to one year’s tuition, spread equally over four years of full-time undergraduate education. The number of Points earned determine the minimum, guaranteed tuition discount students can receive at any SAGE Scholars member college and university. Students may receive more financial aid — but cannot receive less!

  • Each Tuition Rewards Point is equivalent to one dollar in guaranteed minimum tuition discounts at participating institutions.
  • Tuition Rewards Points never expire.
  • You can sign up children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and other family members.
