Financial Aid

Scholarships

Scholarships are forms of “free” money that do not have to be repaid. Bennett College currently offers three types of scholarships. There are Institutional Scholarships, Endowed Scholarships and Non-Endowed/External Scholarships. Scholarships at Bennett College are donor specific and are awarded to students based on criteria. Scholarships are awarded as merit and/or unmet need.

PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS
Scholarships awarded through Bennett College are determined by the Office of Admission where your SAT/ACT scores are recorded and your grade point average from high school is on file. You may call 1-800-413-5323 for further information regarding the process. If you are deemed eligible for a scholarship, the Office of Admission will forward your scholarship award to financial aid for inclusion in your award letter. If it is determined that you are a recipient, the scholarship award will be included in your financial aid offer letter or in some cases, a revised award offer letter.

CONTINUING STUDENTS
Scholarships awarded through Bennett College will become available after final grades have been submitted and 2010-11 classifications have been confirmed through the Office of the Registrar. Please note that your academic progress and funding availability will determine your eligibility for “institutional” scholarships. Please check your Bennett email as we will send electronic announcements regarding scholarship opportunities that require an application.

SCHOLARSHIP COMMITTEE
Bennett College has a scholarship committee that consists of faculty and staff persons representing various areas on campus.
