Wilmington, DE – Goldey-Beacom College (GBC), which ranks among the nation’s top 20% of colleges that provide meaningful economic advancement, has joined the SAGE Scholars® Private College & University Enrollment Consortium. The Consortium’s signature program, SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards® Program, is a nationwide program for families and their students to earn guaranteed minimum scholarships through a national consortium of over 440 participating private colleges and universities.
“This program is designed to help families save and prepare for college,” said GBC President Colleen Perry Keith. “Affordability is key when it comes to making college a reality for students. Membership in the SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards® Program provides us with an additional way to identify and recruit students who may be interested in attending Goldey-Beacom College, while at the same time, offering monetary support that can help ease the financial burden associated with attending a private institution like ours.”
Tuition Rewards® Points accrue like frequent flyer miles and are typically earned by saving or investing with affiliated financial institutions, banks, brokerage firms, credit unions, 529 plans, mutual funds and diverse financial service companies involved in cash-value insurance products, retirement plans and other instruments.
The SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards® Program is offered by over 135,000 employers nationwide including health insurers, financial institutions and non-profits to encourage and reward families for preparing, planning and saving for higher education. Earned Tuition Rewards® Points represent the guaranteed minimum amount of institutional financial aid that participating colleges and universities will award to students.
How it works: Member colleges and universities can recruit participating students when they reach high school age. When a student applies to a member institution, the Tuition Rewards® Program accountholder submits a Tuition Rewards® Points statement to the school.
Each year, participating families typically earn Tuition Rewards® Points equal to 5% of eligible assets invested with SAGE Scholars® financial partners or a fixed number of points available to all employees.
How to qualify: Students must be registered by the start of their senior year in high school. If the student is admitted to a SAGE Scholars® partner college or university and matriculates, the participating member will offer a guaranteed minimum scholarship at least equal to the amount of the student’s Tuition Rewards® Points – up to a maximum of one full year’s tuition, spread evenly over a projected four years of attendance, starting with the first year.
Additional external scholarships, institutional scholarships, grants or other discounts can be applied or stacked with the SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards® Program.
“We are very pleased that Goldey-Beacom College has joined the SAGE Scholars® Private College & University Enrollment Consortium,” stated Dr. James Johnston, SAGE Scholars® founder and president. “Goldey-Beacom is an excellent institution, and we are honored to partner with them to help families save and prepare for college.”
