Berry Scholarships

Left Nav


We suspect that cost is on your mind as you think about college. As you weigh the different options you have before you, don’t forget about the importance of value. Affordability at Berry has always been a two-way exchange. We invest our time and resources into you so that you graduate with a confident sense of where you are headed. Based off of your performance in high school and your family’s financial circumstances, you may qualify for any of the following:

ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP

As we review your application for acceptance, we will also review your performance for academic scholarships. We look at the rigor of your coursework, your grades, and your test scores when awarding you with an academic scholarship. The beauty of this scholarship is once you receive it, you get to keep it all four years as long as you remain a student in good standing. To ensure full consideration for an academic scholarship, submit your application by the Regular Decision deadline of January 15th.

BERRY SCHOLARSHIP FROM ALUMNI AND FRIENDS

In the spirit of our founder, Martha Berry, friends and alumni of the college have given generously over the years to provide opportunities for students who need help affording a Berry education. These funds not only help us to keep our tuition and fees among the lowest in our conference but also help us to open doors for students who will contribute positively to the Berry community. You may apply for these grants by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) any time after October 1 of your senior year.

TRANSFER SCHOLARSHIP

As we review your application for acceptance, we will also review your performance for academic scholarships. We look at the rigor of your coursework, your grades, and sometimes, your test scores when awarding you with a transfer scholarship. Once you receive a transfer scholarship, you get to keep it each year as long as you remain a student in good standing.

SIGNATURE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMS

In addition to the above awards, you may be interested in one of Berry’s signature programs. Berry is a community of communities, working together to live out Martha Berry’s vision - to do good in the world. Seven signature scholarship programs, described below, are great options for you to hone your service, leadership and professional skills.

To be considered for them, you’ll need to start by submitting your application for admission. Your application will tell us a lot about you – your academic history, your activities, and hopefully a bit about the kind of person you are and who you want to become in college. If you’d like to be considered for any need-based program, you’ll also need to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). We’ll use this information to connect you with programs that seem like the best fit for you. If you’re interested in applying to one of these programs, you’ll be able to do so after being accepted to Berry. Just log in to MyBerry, choose the Scholarships tab, and submit the Signature Scholarship Program Application before the December 10 priority date or the February 15 late deadline.
