Bridging the Dream Scholarship

Over the last two years, nine inspiring high school students have been awarded $25,000 each from Sallie Mae and we will award four graduate students with $20,000 each this spring. This program gives each student an opportunity to overcome financial obstacles that stand in their way of achieving their dreams of higher education. Bridging the Dream brings our mission to life as employees across the company come together to raise the funds to support these students.
