You can help change a student's life.

Our Bridging the Dream Scholarship Program helps students build better futures. Since starting the program in 2016, we’ve awarded more than $500,000 in scholarships to deserving high school and graduate students.

Bridging the Dream brings Sallie Mae’s mission to life as employees across the company raise money to help fund the scholarships. Your generous donation can make a difference. Every donation to the Bridging the Dream Scholarship Program goes to the scholarship fund that helps inspiring students.

The Bridging the Dream Scholarship Program is administered by Scholarship America, a registered 501(c)(3) organization. All individual donations of $250 or more will be acknowledged by Scholarship America at the end of the calendar year in the form of a letter to donors.
