Helping to make private college education more affordable.

Since 1995, SAGE Scholars has bridged the gap between students who want a quality private college education and colleges that will work closely with member families to ensure affordability — all at no cost to the student, family, or college.

As the nation’s oldest and largest private college preparation and funding organization, Tuition Rewards® provides families a guaranteed tuition reduction of up to 25%. In the last year, Tuition Rewards has guaranteed families savings of over $98M in tuition.

Saving for college is one of the biggest challenges families face today. The SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards program reduces financial stress and provides a simple and effective way for your family to send a child or loved one to college.

Once enrolled, sponsors and students earn SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards Points to help offset the financial burdens of a four-year undergraduate degree at a SAGE Scholars member colleges and universities.
