Gate of Opportunity Scholarships
Building on Berry’s rich history of combining rigorous academics with firsthand values-based work experience, the Gate of Opportunity Scholarship is a four-year program offering highly motivated students with a “can-do” attitude and strong work ethic the opportunity to experience the fullness of a Berry education and to graduate debt free.
Each Gate of Opportunity Scholarship represents a partnership between the student/family, Berry College and, in many instances, a donor(s) who shares our belief in the life-changing power of a Berry education. Each contributes one third of the cost of the scholarship on an annual basis.
Students selected for the Gate of Opportunity Scholarship benefit from a challenging academic program, four years of meaningful values-based work experience and a stimulating campus community. In addition, Berry assists each recipient in developing an integrated four-year plan that includes study, work and personal development, and valuable mentoring experiences. Contact Scott Breithaupt for more details.
