SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards

Lincoln College is committed to ensuring our institution is affordable and financially accessible to more families. As part of that commitment, Lincoln College is an active participant and member in the Tuition Rewards Program, sponsored by SAGE Scholars (Savings and Growth for Education), an independent organization.


By investing or saving with participating banks, credit unions, 529 Plans, and other financial institutions, family members can earn “points” to provide students with guaranteed minimum scholarships at a national consortium of participating independent colleges, including Lincoln College. Points can be redeemed for up to the full cost of base tuition spread evenly over four undergraduate years. Tuition Rewards are provided regardless of the income or assets of the student or their family members.


Tuition Rewards must be submitted within 10 days of a student’s application for admission to Lincoln College through the Account Statement page. Statements submitted after Lincoln College has prepared a financial aid package for the student may invalidate the use of Tuition Rewards.

There are 3 very important SAGE Scholars deadlines:
1st Deadline

Student must be by August 31st of the year that the student begins 11th grade.


2nd Deadline

Students must receive Tuition Rewards points by August 31st of the year that the student begins 12th grade.


3rd Deadline

Submit Tuition Rewards points to a college within 10 days of a student’s application (10 days before or after).


These are the deadlines in most cases. Some programs may have a later deadline to add a student (please refer to the program documentation or your welcome email for details). Check out our FAQs for more information. If you have further questions, contact
