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


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

Only two weeks remain for local community leaders and high school
counselors to nominate high school juniors or seniors in Indiana 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 scholarships is reserved for a student
in Indiana, home to more than 400 Sallie Mae employees.

The ideal candidate should be an Indiana 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.

"Indiana 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 together, we'll help make college happen!"
