Sallie Mae Bridging the Dream Scholarships

The Sallie Mae Fund, the charitable arm of Sallie Mae®, has partnered with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund to launch a new scholarship program. The Sallie Mae Fund Bridging the Dream Scholarship Program will provide $1 million a year over the next three years to help students access and complete post-secondary education.

Nearly 900 students, including high school seniors, students in their final year of post-secondary education, and grad students, will receive scholarships through the scholarship program over the next three years.

  • The Bridging the Dream Scholarship for High School Seniors: In 2021, The Sallie Mae Fund will award $10,000 scholarships to high school seniors who plan to enroll in a two- or four-year degree professional certificate, or vocational training program. Seniors who excel inside and outside of the classroom and demonstrate financial need can apply now through March 8 at www.salliemae.com/landing/bridging-the-dream.
