As one of the world's leading technological institutions, Rochester Institute of Technology (NY) is a vibrant, connected community that is home to more than 13,500 diverse, ambitious and creative undergraduate students from over 100 countries. RIT offers an incredible array of academic programs; a diverse, committed, and accessible faculty; sophisticated facilities; and, an unusual emphasis on experiential learning.
RIT's academic programs attract designers, artists, photographers and filmmakers on one hand - and, scientists, engineers, computing scientists and entrepreneurs on the other. When these "left-brain and right-brain" students engage with outstanding faculty, a learning environment is created where innovation and creativity flourish.
Since 1912, the hallmark of an RIT education has been experiential learning. RIT was among the first universities in the world to offer cooperative education. Last year, more than 3,500 co-op students alternated periods of study on campus with paid employment in nearly 2,000 firms across the United States and overseas. Today, experiential learning also includes internships, study abroad, and undergraduate research.
RIT attracts students from every state as well as 1,500+ international students. Embodying our commitment to diversity, more than 2,000 students of color have elected to study at RIT. Adding a unique social and educational dynamic, more than 1,300 deaf and hard-of-hearing students are supported by RIT's National Technical Institute for the Deaf. The variety of backgrounds and perspectives represented in our community enriches the living and learning experience for all.
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.
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.
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
