Scholarships are monetary gifts that don't have to be repaid, and they are meant to celebrate you! You might receive a scholarship for your academic achievement, special talent, act of service, personal history, or something more. Scholarships may be considered taxable income at both the state and federal level.

Nearly all incoming students receive some form of scholarship funds. Below, you can find more information about the scholarships available to incoming students for the 2024-2025 school year. If you started at Bethel prior to 2024-2025, please see our aid opportunities for prior years.

  • Faith in Action Scholarship: Offered to new incoming students beginning at Bethel during the 2023-2024 academic year. Applicants must have involvement with specific faith based organizations.

Additional Information

Bethel grants and scholarships will be reduced if your total gift aid from all sources exceeds your financial aid cost of attendance budget. Bethel grants and scholarships also require a minimum of half time enrollment in courses required for graduation.

To maintain your Bethel grants and scholarships, you must remain in good academic standing and be working toward your first bachelor degree. Scholarships will be pro-rated if you are enrolled less than full time. Read our financial aid terms and conditions for details on eligibility and expectations.

If you have any questions about these policies and how they could impact your financial aid, don't hesitate to contact your financial aid counselor!
