Bridging the Dream Scholarship

From now until September 27, Sallie Mae® is accepting nominations from counselors, teachers, administrators, community leaders, etc. for the Bridging the Dream Scholarship. This year, we will be awarding a new group of inspiring high school students with $25,000 each.
Do you know a high school junior or senior
– who works hard and inspires others;
– has an interesting story to tell; and
– is gifted or skilled in a way you think is outstanding?
Your nominee could be a student that you’ve helped guide along the way, someone who has inspired you, or a student you worry may come up financially short of fulfilling their dreams.
Let’s try to help them make college happen. Visit to learn more about our previous winners, how this scholarship has impacted their lives, and to nominate a student today.
You can help even more students find scholarships by telling them to check out our free Scholarship Search tool. It matches students with scholarship opportunities based on their unique skills, activities, and interests.
