Will I receive additional grant money because I'm a SAGE Scholar?
Only students who are full time and pursuing their first undergraduate degree will be considered for SAGE Tuition Rewards. When a student is accepted to LVC, the Admission Office determines what academic scholarship s/he is eligible to receive. Students who would like to be considered for need-based aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The total amount of the SAGE Tuition Rewards (TR) earned is divided by the four-year period that a student attends college. For instance, if your SAGE TRs equal $10,000, you would have $2,500 per year over four years. If the academic scholarship plus other LVC grants and scholarships awarded exceed the amount of SAGE TRs (per year), no additional grant will be awarded; however, if your SAGE TRs exceed the total amount of LVC grants and scholarships, LVC will award the difference in the form of a SAGE grant. Generally speaking, the academic scholarships and/or LVC grants and scholarships are worth more per year than the SAGE TRs. As a result, most students participating in SAGE do not receive additional funding.
