Only Two Weeks Left to Nominate Utah High School Students for Sallie Mae’s $25,000 College Scholarship

Deadline for School Counselors and Community Leaders to Nominate
Utah High School Juniors
and Seniors for Bridging the
Dream Scholarship Program is Sept. 27

NEWARK, Del.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#BridgingTheDream–Only two weeks remain for local community leaders and high school
counselors to nominate high school juniors or seniors in Utah for a
$25,000 Bridging
the Dream Scholarship
from Sallie Mae, the nation’s saving,
planning, and paying for college company. Counselors and community
leaders can complete the application at
now through Sept. 27. One of the $25,000 scholarships is reserved for a
student in Utah, home to Sallie Mae Bank in Salt Lake City.

The ideal candidate should be a Utah high school junior or senior who
excels in academics, athletics, community service, or school activities,
but whose financial circumstances or other obstacles in life may not
allow him or her to pursue a college education. The simple nomination
process requires two, 200-word essays that highlight contributions
inside and outside the classroom and any issues that may prevent a
student from attending college.

“Utah is home to remarkable students who are aspiring to turn the dream
of college into a reality,” said Martha Holler, senior vice president,
Sallie Mae. “Over the next two weeks, we urge high school counselors and
leaders throughout the community to nominate a deserving student, and
