The SYNOVUS SOPHOMORE SCHOLARS Program awards up to $2,000 to Berry College students who are rising sophomores and $500 for faculty or staff mentors to support projects related to the student's exploration of academic, research or growth experiences such as practicums, research, internships, entrepreneurial service or work projects, or artistic endeavors.
