Tuition Rewards by SAGE Scholars

SAGE Scholars Educational Foundation’s

$1,000,000 Pledge

The mission of the SAGE Scholars Educational Foundation is to help SAGE Scholars families afford high-quality private education. To achieve that goal, SAGE Scholars has pledged one million dollars in hard dollar scholarships to help families bridge the gap between what schools are able to offer in financial aid and the cost of tuition, room and board, and additional expenses.

Apply for a Dr. James B. Johnston Scholarship

We are delighted to announce the start of our third annual Dr. James B. Johnston Scholarship Essay Competition. This year SAGE Scholars has committed to providing up to $100,000 in hard dollar scholarships, with a maximum award of $10,000, to SAGE Scholars High School Seniors who submit a winning essay and will attend a member college or university in the fall.


The Dr. James B. Johnston Scholarship is named after our company's founder and president. This year Dr. Johnston created two essays questions that seniors can choose from:

  1. Why did you choose a SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards member college or university?
  2. Has the coronavirus pandemic impacted your choice of college or university? If so, how?

Submitted essays should be approximately 500 words in length. The essay must be written by the student to be considered.

Login to your Tuition Rewards account to view information about this year's scholarship program and how you can apply. The scholarship submission opens on February 15th, 2021 and will close at 11:59pm (eastern time) May 15th, 2021.

Please note: If this student has created his or her own log in account, the student can log in and apply for this scholarship directly.

When the application closes on May 15th, we will email all applicants with information on how to submit proof of enrollment at a member college or university. Only students who will be attending a member college or university are eligible for a Dr. James B. Johnston Scholarship.

Students will have from May 15th to July 1st to submit proof enrollment at a member college or university. On July 15th we will be announcing the scholarship winners.

All Dr. James B. Johnston Scholarship winners will receive their scholarship check by the end of August.

Congratulations and best wishes for a productive and successful academic year!
