The SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards program is a college saving plan like no other
By enrolling in Tuition Rewards, students will earn guaranteed minimum scholarships at over 430 participating private colleges and universities across America! The scholarships can equal up to one full year's tuition!
Each Tuition Reward Point is equal to $1.00 in tuition discounts if the student attends a participating college or university. The accumulated points represent the minimum scholarship (grant or other institutional discount) that the student will receive.
Tuition Reward Points accrue like frequent flyer miles and are typically earned by saving or investing with affiliated financial institutions - or simply by being employed by one of over 135,000 employers nationwide that offer Tuition Rewards. Financial products include 529 plans, banks, brokerage firms, credit unions, mutual funds and diverse financial service companies involved in cash-value insurance products, retirement plans and other instruments. What makes Tuition Rewards even more unique is that you do not have to use the investment earning Reward Points to pay for college! How you pay for college is your choice.
- Students can be added to Tuition Rewards from birth through to August 31st of the year that the student begins 12th grade.
- August 31st of the year that the student begins 12th grade is also the last day that a student can earn or receive Tuition Rewards.
- A student's Tuition Rewards must submitted within ten (10) days of the student's application to participating college or university.
