Virtual Graduation Celebration for Seniors Across America

With this in mind, I’m pleased to announce that Sallie Mae® will team up with Her Campus for
a nationwide virtual graduation ceremony! The #ImStillGraduating virtual graduation event
will take place on Friday, May 15 at 12 p.m. ET at It is open to any
and all students graduating from high school or college this spring. This free event will feature
speeches and appearances – both pre-recorded and live – from celebrities, business leaders,
influencers, politicians, and other thought leaders, as well as musical guests. For a complete
list of participants visit

As the “Official Partner in Responsibly Funding Futures” Sallie Mae will offer graduates the
chance to fund their “next” through our “Funded Futures” Competition. The contest will
provide four deserving graduates $25,000 to help them along their path or journey whether
that be starting a business, settling into their first job, or another important milestone.  Any
graduating high school senior can enter at 
Sallie Mae “Funded Futures” Competition now
through May 24. 

It goes without saying that, during these times of uncertainty, hope and positivity are what
our students, families, and communities need right now. We hope this virtual graduation
ceremony will provide just that for the class of 2020

As always, we appreciate your partnership and the opportunity to support your students. We look
forward to reconnecting with you in person when it is safe to do so.

Until then, we hope you’ll spread the word about this exciting event and opportunity for students
to win $25,000. We invite you, your students, families and colleagues to tune into the
#ImStillGraduating virtual graduation on May 15 starting at noon. We hope to see you there!
