Say Yes announced on Sept. 17 2015, that its national Higher Education Compact – a coalition of private colleges and universities located in 21 states and the District of Columbia that offer full-tuition scholarships to eligible Say Yes Scholars – had reached the milestone of 100 member institutions. The Compact had 38 member colleges as recently as two years ago and 69 during the last academic year. The organization’s 31 newest higher education partners include Caltech, George Washington University, Johns Hopkins University and the University of Chicago, as well as Ithaca College, the New School and Union College in New York. They join Cornell University, Duke University, Georgetown University, the University of Notre Dame, Stanford University, Syracuse University and all eight members of the Ivy League.
Please note: Private Partner colleges are the primary source of funding to Say Yes students attending their institutions. While all of the colleges have agreed to the basic conditions of the Say Yes program, colleges may have individual policies and restrictions. The determination of the actual award that a student receives will be made by the college at their discretion based on college policies. Partner Colleges with unique conditions to the agreement with Say Yes have an asterisk and a brief description of the unique qualifiers in their agreement.
