Gannon University (Erie, PA) is a Catholic, Diocesan university where a caring community of dynamic faculty and staff educate motivated students in a value-centered environment. For the 6th consecutive year, Gannon is ranked as a Top Tier university in U.S. News & World Report's "America’s Best Colleges" -- and is designated among the "Top Up-and-Coming Schools."
With 4,238 students, Gannon’s enrollment is at a 17-year high, but the University continues to maintain a low student-to-faculty ratio (14:1). Gannon offers nearly 100 academic programs in the health professions, business, education, engineering, humanities and the social sciences. A new, state-of-the-art Patient Simulation Center allows students of different health disciplines to work collaboratively in a hospital-like setting where they practice real-world scenarios on high fidelity "manikins" that react to treatments like human patients.
Gannon University focuses on preparing students for leadership roles in their careers, society and churches. Gannon’s retention, graduation, employment and professional school placement rates significantly exceed national averages. Additionally, Gannon offers students a full range of extra- and co-curricular activities, including more than 70 campus clubs and organizations offering challenging leadership opportunities. The University annually awards more than $28 million in financial aid.

The SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards Consortium is a unique private college enrollment marketing tool to fill a "traditional" freshman class. Our member colleges & universities are able to identify prospective students from families who are actively saving and planning for higher education or work for a company that provides good benefits... and who have indicated interest in attending a private college. SAGE Students tend to be well qualified - both academically and financially.
Employees of companies which offer voluntary benefits through select national insurers, or who partner directly with SAGE can earn guaranteed college scholarships for use at over almost 400 private colleges and universities across the United States, for their children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews, based on their 401(k), 403(b), profit-sharing or other company sponsored retirement savings plan. Tuition Rewards is available nationwide through over 135,000 participating employers. What could be better than helping to make the ever-escalating cost of college more affordable for your employees? Tuition Rewards should help give your company an edge in workplace satisfaction - and in attracting and retaining talent.
