  • Our Commitment

    At Sage, we are committed to making a first-rate private college education affordable.

    We prepare students for great careers. And we know that life after graduation is easier with less debt.

    Each accepted first-year undergraduate student is guaranteed $60,000 in scholarship.

    This scholarship covers four consecutive years ($15,000 per year) of undergraduate full-time study in good academic standing.

    That’s right. There’s no income barrier or confusing restrictions.

    You’ll learn, prepare and graduate from Sage with less debt. Then take that step forward to a career on better financial footing.

    Making College Affordable

    As an accepted Sage first-year student, you’re guaranteed $60,000 — but you may be eligible to receive additional aid based on academic achievement or financial need.

    Merit Scholarships
    Sage Merit scholarships are the base for a student’s financial aid package. Students of superior academic accomplishment may be eligible for scholarship aid beyond the $60,000 four-year award.

    Institutional Grants
    Russell Sage College offers a variety of grant programs based on financial need and other factors. Filing a 2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step in applying for Russell Sage College grant aid. 

    Endowed Scholarships
    Russell Sage College is fortunate to have generous donors that provide endowed scholarship funds that we award each year to our students. Students are evaluated by the financial aid office to determine eligibility based on each scholarships’ specific criteria. No additional applications are required!

    State and Federal Aid

    We encourage you to work with one of our financial aid administrators to fully explore your options.

    All students who meet eligibility requirements can receive some type of financial aid regardless of income. We encourage all students to file the 2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). In addition, if you are a New York State resident, you should file your NYS Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application as well. Students from other states should work with their school counselors to see if state aid is available if you attend an out-of-state institution. LEARN MORE
