Berea College Scholarships for International Students
Berea College offers a Bachelor’s degree in any subject, and the course starts in Fall 2024. The deadline for application is 15 Oct/15 Jan (Annual). All admitted students receive the No-Tuition Promise, which covers 100% of tuition costs. This means that no student pays tuition at Berea College. The college admits about 30 new international students each year, and all enrolled students are eligible for the scholarship.
International students are expected to save US$1,000 per year to contribute towards their expenses in subsequent years. The College provides summer jobs to international students so that they may meet this obligation. Accepted international students are also expected to pay a $2,200 (US) deposit to confirm their enrollment. This deposit can be used by international students for certain expenses during their four years of enrollment. For students who are unable to pay all or a portion of the deposit, additional financial aid is available.
To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must meet university entrance requirements in their own country and present outstanding secondary or leaving exam results. They must also present scores from one of the following approved standardized tests: TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, ACT or Duolingo. The minimum score required for each test is:
