Sage Scholars Tuition Rewards Program
Make College More Affordable

ASBA is dedicated to education. ASBA members can now make college more affordable for their loved ones through Tuition Rewards from SAGE Scholars, the nation's largest private college saving program. This is a great, free way to help your grandchildren and other family members save on their college education costs. 

More than 190,000 students nationwide are now earning Tuition Reward Points that can be redeemed for tuition discounts—guaranteed minimum scholarships—at 270+ participating private colleges & universities in 43 states. The ''network" is growing; 74 new colleges have joined the enrollment marketing consortium in the past three years. The program encourages families to saving for higher education. 

The tuition discounts give participating students an incentive to attend member schools, which include a mix of large, well-known universities (Creighton, DePaul, Drexel, Duquesne, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, University of Dayton, University of San Diego) and smaller institutions. Only private, four-year colleges are eligible to join; colleges typically include Rewards with other financial aid offers. Tuition Reward points do not affect financial aid eligibility. 

ASBA members earn 500 Points (valued at $500) for signing up. Plus, each student whom you enroll also earns 500 Points. Students must be family members who have not yet begun their junior year in high school. Additional Reward Points may be earned through an affiliation with other participating financial affiliates.

Not all programs available in all states. Subject to regulatory terms.
