Prospective Students

Greetings from the Bonner Scholars Program at Berry College! Our program offers a unique scholarship opportunity for students interested in fulfilling the college motto, "Not to be ministered unto, but to minister." Through the Bonner Scholars Program, students engage in community service as a means to address social need while making their education affordable.

The following is information that you may find helpful when deciding whether to apply:

  1. Bonner is a financial need-based scholarship. Based on the information that you provide in the Free Application for Student Federal Aid (FAFSA), the federal government will assign you an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC). Your EFC is the amount of money that the federal government estimates your family can pay toward your education. Freshmen Bonner Scholars cannot typically have an EFC of greater than $10,000.

  2. Bonner is a service scholarship. As we review applications, we look for students who have been actively engaged in meaningful service to their communities, faith groups, and/or families. Bonner Scholars serve at least 140 hours a semester (10 hours a week) with non-profits, governmental agencies, and schools in the Rome-Floyd County community. Participation in the Bonner Scholars Program is in lieu of the on-campus work opportunity. In addition to service completed during the academic term, students serve 280 hours each summer for two summers in local, state, national, and international internships.

  3. Bonner Scholars meet on a regular basis to explore common commitments of Community Building, Civic Engagement, Diversity, International Perspective, Spiritual Exploration, and Social Justice. We strive to identify and develop our passions and skills and apply those passions and skills to help meet the needs of the world. Our desire is for all Bonner Scholars to practice Servant Leadership.
