Berea College is the only school in the United States that pays 100% of tuition for 100% of enrolled international students.
I know it is hard to believe, but the truth is that Berea College awards admission and a four-year tuition scholarship (valued at over $23,000) to 30 international students every year. Ranked among the top private colleges in the United States, Berea College is committed to serving students with great academic promise whose family financial resources will not otherwise permit access to an academic program of such high distinction.
Admission is competitive. Each year we receive over 500 international applications for admission and scholarship. We rarely admit more than one student annually from the same country and almost never offer admission to someone who has already begun their studies at another university. The most competitive candidates demonstrate exemplary academic performance and considerable financial need as compared to their peers.
Berea College has approximately 1,500 students, 120 of whom come from outside of the U.S. Our student body is comprised of students from 70 nations. Each student, professor and staff member contributes to a = dynamic, exciting and progressive learning environment. All Berea students work on campus, in a job of their choosing after the first year, as a part of the educational program. Presently, 100% of the international students graduate from Berea within five years.
Founded in 1855 with a mission to serve talented, underprivileged students, Berea College practices an inclusive Christian tradition which is expressed by the diversity of religious, ethnic, and cultural identities represented in our student body. Berea's beautiful campus is located in Berea, Kentucky, where many people are interested in and supportive of international students.
With limited space, our goal each year is to enroll 30 of the brightest and poorest new students from impoverished or war-torn areas around the world. Please help us reach the most deserving students in your country by recommending that they visit our website at: http://www.berea.edu
