Students at graduation


Berea is the only top college that awards every enrolled student a no-tuition promise. Berea College serves low-income students from Appalachia, the nation, and the world by providing each with a Tuition Promise Scholarship.

We can only continue to do so with the support of those who realize the importance of investing in lives of great promise.
