Featured College

Hope College is a leading four-year liberal arts college where academic excellence, vibrant Christian faith and diverse co-curricular programs join in a welcoming environment.

Hope is nestled on a beautifully landscaped campus in the heart of award-winning downtown Holland, Michigan, just miles from pristine beaches. Part of this thriving community for more than 150 years, Hope is home to more than 3,200 students.

Offering 91 majors, minors and pre-professional programs, Hope provides the flexibility for students to pursue broad and varied academic interests. Our student-to-faculty ratio of 11:1 ensures that our small class sizes encourage strong connection and mentoring.

Hope College graduates are educated to think about important issues with clarity, wisdom and a deeper understanding of the historic Christian faith. Though affiliated with the Reformed Church in America, we are ecumenically diverse. Students of all faiths — and no faith — are welcome.

This rare combination of deep roots and rigorous preparation for the world of tomorrow equips Hope graduates to leave campus and make an impact at organizations, companies and graduate schools around the country and abroad. Of the most recent graduating class:

  • 94% were in the workforce or graduate school within six months
  • 86% of those employed full-time were employed in their field of study

For Families

Tuition Reward Points accrue like frequent flyer miles and are typically earned through an affiliated financial institution, health insurance, or employer. These include 529 plans, banks, brokerage firms, companies, credit unions, mutual funds, non-profits and diverse financial service companies involved in life insurance, health insurance or retirement plans. Your Tuition Rewards Points represent guaranteed minimum discounts off the "list price" of tuition at many of America's best private colleges.

For Colleges

The SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards Consortium is a unique private college enrollment marketing tool to fill a "traditional" freshman class. Our member colleges & universities are able to identify prospective students from families who are actively saving and planning for higher education or work for a company that provides good benefits... and who have indicated interest in attending a private college. SAGE Students tend to be well qualified - both academically and financially.

For Employers

Employees of companies which offer voluntary benefits through select national insurers, or who partner directly with SAGE can earn guaranteed college scholarships for use at over almost 400 private colleges and universities across the United States, for their children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews, based on their 401(k), 403(b), profit-sharing or other company sponsored retirement savings plan. Tuition Rewards is available nationwide through over 135,000 participating employers. What could be better than helping to make the ever-escalating cost of college more affordable for your employees? Tuition Rewards should help give your company an edge in workplace satisfaction - and in attracting and retaining talent.

For Financial Institutions

SAGE's Tuition Rewards program is a college savings and investment plan like no other. We've expanded our program so that families can now earn Tuition Rewards on 529 saving plans, CDs, mutual funds, 401(k)s, IRAs, supplemental retirement accounts, annuities, insurance products (with cash value), reverse mortgages, brokerage accounts, certain income-replacement health insurance products, and even home equity lines of credit.

"The program helps differentiate Harleysville Savings Bank in an industry with commoditized products, and it gives customers reason to stay with the bank."
