Sallie Mae has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.
Children of officers or members of the Board of Directors of Sallie Mae and/or its subsidiaries are ineligible.
Students may remain eligible for renewal provided the student has continuous schooling (no breaks) when moving from undergraduate degree to graduate degree.
Awards are for undergraduate or graduate study.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Sallie Mae play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in March. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students not selected as recipients may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Sallie Mae. Payments are made in one installment early August.
Also as part of your application, an outside appraisal must be submitted on your behalf through the Scholarship America Hub by 3:00 p.m. CT on January 20, 2020.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically.
