Sallie Mae, the nation’s No. 1 financial services company specializing in education, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Sallie Mae Bank, has awarded a total of $85,000 in scholarships to 23 undergraduates. The scholarship recipients are pursuing engineering, nursing, respiratory therapy or teaching programs at higher education institutions in six Utah counties.

“Since I could remember, I have always wanted to become a nurse and be able to heal, help, and promote the well-being of others. However, I had always worried that the financial burden associated with higher education would hinder my ability to fulfill this dream,” said scholarship recipient Amy Dalton. “Currently, I am preparing to enter my final year of nursing school and because of the assistance of programs such as the Sallie Mae Bank program, I can very realistically see my dreams coming true.”

Since the scholarship program began in 2006, Sallie Mae Bank has awarded nearly $535,000 in scholarship assistance to students attending colleges in Cache, Davis, Salt Lake, Tooele, Utah and Weber counties. Recipients were required to submit a one-page essay detailing their educational goals.

“Sallie Mae Bank is proud to assist our future engineers, nurses, respiratory therapists and teachers of Utah,” said Paul Thome, president of Sallie Mae Bank. “Higher education is a major achievement and critical to success in this economy. We applaud these students for their commitment to education.”

Academic year 2013-2014 scholarship recipients are:
