“To know that a donor has invested in my education pushes me to do better in both work and academics. It encourages me to do better because I’m not just here for myself.”
-- Alyssa Hollingsworth
Every student has a unique story, and at Berry College, that story often begins with a donor who shares our belief in the trans-formative power of higher education. Martha Berry planted the seeds that would grow into Berry College in 1902 as a path from poverty for local children. Today, we honor her legacy by offering a wide range of scholarships, support for which is provided by alumni and friends who choose, through their giving, to open Berry's “Gate of Opportunity” to hundreds of students each year.
