New Program Converts Aeroplan™ Miles to Tuition and Scholarship Funds at Sheridan

August 28, 2014

Starting this fall, students enrolled at Sheridan will have a new way to help pay for their education.  Thanks to a partnership with Higher Ed Points, students and their families and friends will now be able to “crowdsource” donations of Aeroplan Miles and convert them into funds to use toward this end.

For every 35,000 Aeroplan Miles, a $250 credit can be transferred to Sheridan to cover fees, including tuition. Details about the process can be found at higheredpoints.com/how-it-works.

“Education is the best investment people can make in their future,” says Ian Marley, Vice President Student Affairs and Enrolment Management.  “Each year at Sheridan, approximately 70% of students receive some form of supplemental funding including  scholarships, awards and bursaries, and government assistance to help them on their educational journey.  We’re pleased to offer students yet another way to lighten their load so they can focus on their studies.”

Later this fall, alumni and friends will also be able to donate their Aeroplan Miles to a charitable pooling account that supports scholarships and other fundraising initiatives at Sheridan. “We’re hoping the program will provide an easy way for people to give back to the institution” says Jennifer Clarke, Manager of Alumni.  “The ability to donate Aeroplan Miles provides alumni and friends with an alternative way to support our students.”
