SAGE Private School Scholarship Program
As a client of Healthy Financial, Inc., you now can receive a very unique reward – the opportunity for the students in your family to earn discounts on tuition at an expanding national “network” of 275+ private colleges & universities.
Make college more affordable for your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, etc. Enroll them ASAP in Tuition Rewards® from SAGE Scholars, the nation's largest private college saving program. This is a great, free way to help your family save on college costs.
More than 200,000 students nationwide are now earning Tuition Reward Points that can be redeemed for tuition discounts -- guaranteed minimum scholarships -- at participating private colleges.
Tuition Reward Points are similar to Frequent Flyer Miles. Points give participating students an incentive to attend member colleges, who are looking to recruit more or better students. A college’s normal admissions standards apply.
Rewards are limited to participating colleges for undergraduate study, starting with the freshman year. Member colleges include well-known universities (Clark, Clarkson, Creighton, DePaul, Drexel, Duquesne, Fairleigh-Dickinson, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, University of Dayton, University of San Diego, Valparaiso) as well as smaller institutions from Maine to Hawaii.
Only private, four-year colleges are eligible to join. The reason: State schools generally do not give in-state residents any financial aid that is not based on a determination of "need" (except athletic scholarships) using the FAFSA form. Also, there are approximately 50 very selective private colleges (Harvard, Duke, Georgetown, MIT, Notre Dame, Reed, Stanford, etc.) that cannot participate because they offer financial aid based solely on “need” (except athletic scholarships, where permitted).
The Tuition Reward Points that you earn do not affect a family’s financial aid eligibility and are not taxable (as they do not represent income).
Enrollment is easy. You fill out a form; your advisor sets up your account. Next, you receive an email from Tuition Rewards. When you click on the link in the email and supply a user name and password, your account is “activated” -- and you receive 500 Enrollment Bonus Points ($500 value). In addition, each student whom you enroll also earns 500 Points ($500 value). Students must be family members (children, stepchildren, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, etc.) who have not yet begun their junior year in high school. Don’t wait!
Additional Tuition Reward Points are awarded annually as long as you remain a client. Consult your advisor for the applicable Reward formula.
The Reward Points are awarded directly to the client’s Tuition Rewards account. Clients must transfer the Points to their students’ accounts on or before Aug. 31st of the year that they begin their senior year of high school. When your student applies to a member college, you must submit a Reward statement to the college from your account at time of application.
