Scholarships at more than 445 Schools

As a client of College Planning & Research Group you can now receive  a very unique reward - the opportunity for the students in your family to earn discounts on tuition at an expanding national "network" of 445+ private colleges and universities in 47 states.
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.

More than 342,000 students nationwide are now earning Tuition Reward Points that can be redeemed for tuition discounts -- guaranteed minimum scholarships -- at our participating private colleges and universities.

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 admission standards apply. 

Rewards are limited to participating colleges for undergraduate study, starting with freshman year.  Member colleges include well-known large universities (Clarkson, Creighton, De Paul, Drexel, Duquesne, Fairleigh-Dickinson, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, University of Dayton, University of San Diego, Valparaiso) and a mix of 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 need based on a determination of "need" (except for athletic scholarship) using the FAFSA form.  Also, there are approximately 50 very selective  private colleges (Harvard, Duke, Georgetown, Stanford, etc.) that cannot participate because they offer financial aid based 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; we set up an account.  You receive an email from Tuition Rewards.  When you click on the link in the email and supply a username and password, your account is "activated" - -  and you receive 500 Enrollment Bonus 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 (CPRG) for the applicable Reward formula.

The reward Points are awarded directly to the client's Tuition Rewards account.  Clients need to transfer the Points to their student's account on or before August 31st  of the year that they begin college.
