SAGE Scholars

Welcome to the SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards® program offered through Savers Bank.

You're making a smart choice in thinking about college education now and we are here to help you in that journey. Paying for college is one of the biggest challenges families face. That's why Savers Bank has partnered with SAGE Scholars to offer depositors an opportunity to save as much as 25% off the cost of a four-year college degree! The program is provided free of charge for being a valued Savers Bank customer.

SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards is a unique private college savings program in which you earn Tuition Rewards Points.

The Tuition Rewards Points represent the guaranteed minimum amount of institutional financial aid (scholarships or grants) that an eligible student will receive when he or she attends a member college or university. The discounts are provided by the college and they reserve the right to use Tuition Rewards as part of or separate from any financial aid/scholarship offer. Tuition Rewards are not awarded in cash and have no cash value.

Tuition Rewards Points Example:

If a family redeems 30,000 Tuition Rewards Points for a student, the student is guaranteed to receive at least $30,000 in financial aid (scholarships or grants), spread equally over four years of a traditional undergraduate education. The student may receive more but is guaranteed not to receive less. The Rewards Points can also be divided equally over five (5) years if student is enrolled in a co-op program.

Even if you don't have an eligible student in your family right now, you can still register and begin to earn Tuition Rewards. The sooner you register, the more points you will have accrued for a loved one when they attend a member college or university.

You will need your “Savers Bank Person Number” to complete your registration and start earning points. Your person number is a unique identifier assigned by Savers Bank. You do not need your Person Number to get started and can skip this step for now and call 800-649-3036 during normal business hours for assistance with obtaining it.

Here's how you can earn Tuition Rewards Points by banking at Savers Bank:

Please note: Eligible accounts are for personal accounts only. Trust accounts established using a person's social security number are also eligible. Only one account owner can enroll and earn points.
