SAGE Scholars Educational Foundation Announces $1 Million in Dr. James B. Johnston Scholarships Over the Next 5 Years

$200,000 in Scholarships will be Given Out Annually by SAGE Scholars

The SAGE Scholars Educational Foundation is proud to offer $200,000 in Dr. James B. Johnston Scholarships this year. We are awarding the Dr. James B. Johnston Scholarships to students attending a SAGE member college or university. The goal of these scholarships is to provide additional assistance to students as they face the challenge of bridging the gap between what schools are able to offer in aid and the cost of tuition, room and board, etc. We are hopeful that these scholarships lighten the financial burden for many families across the country.

Half of our $200,000 scholarships will be awarded through our educational partners. The other half will be awarded to winning participants in our Dr. James B. Johnston Essay competition. Find entry instructions bellow.

The Dr. James B Johnston scholarships are named after our company’s founder and CEO. The essay must be written by the student to be considered. The student’s essay can cover any one of these topics: (1) How the SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards Program influenced your college choice, (2) Why you selected an independent, private college over a state or public college, or (3) An original, creative story or anecdote about your school experiences. Essays should be about 500 words in length.
