      Higher Education Tuition Assistance Program

         Guardian Index Corporation’s Higher Education Tuition Assistance Program essentially
gives current or prospective students the ability to gather business sponsors throughout their
community who will financially assist the student to further their education. Financial assistance
is one of the leading roadblocks for students today, as tuition costs rise. Guardian Index
Corporation’s Higher Education Tuition Assistance Program helps to alleviate that burden with a
little effort from the student. GIC’s H.E.T.A.P. assists students in building relationships,
whether personal or professional, with their respective sponsors that will in turn benefit both the
student and the businesses.

                        How It Works – Abbreviated
   1. A current or prospective student applies with Guardian Index for the opportunity to
      receive sponsorship from local businesses.
   2. Guardian Index approves the student through specific guidelines or criteria that meets our
      standards. (see Approval Criteria Appendix)
   3. Once the student is approved and properly trained, the student seeks sponsorship by
      contacting local businesses.
   4. When a business accepts the sponsorship, the student contacts Guardian Index who
      sequentially contacts the business sponsor for payment.
   5. 75% of the $600.00 payment (made to Guardian Index Corporation) from the business is
      directed to the institution the student is or will be attending. (see Payments Appendix)

   6. 25% of the $600.00 payment from the business provides the business with an online
      directory advertisement for 1 year on (see Online Directory

                                  Approval Criteria
