SAGE Scholars, Steps Up with $100,000 in
Coronavirus Emergency Relief Funds
Please note that this fund was closed on March 28th, 2020 after we sucessfully distributed $100,000 in emergency relief aid directly to students.
Across the country, parents and students alike are taking the necessary precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19. SAGE Scholars understands the financial hardships facing millions of students. To show our support for any student struggling financially, SAGE Scholars is pledging $100,000 in aid to students attending any of our 400+ member colleges and universities.
Company President, Doctor James B. Johnston explains his decision to give emergency relief, "In times of great challenge like the one we are facing today, it's crucial to remember that we are all in this together. We all need to be asking ourselves how we can work to not only keep ourselves safe, but how we can keep others safe and healthy."
"That is why SAGE Scholars is distributing a total of $100,000 in emergency relief funds to any student attending a SAGE Scholars member college or university. Students do not need to be in the SAGE Scholars network to apply for an award amount of up to $250. I want this money to help as many students as possible, so that they can focus on taking classes remotely and doing their best to ensure their academic success when colleges and universities reopen."
By March 28th, 2020, SAGE Scholars had distributed $100,000 in relief funds directly to students who applied.
