To Berea against All Odds

Berea College has intentionally served the needs of students from Appalachia and Kentucky, who together make up around 70% of today’s student body. Thankfully, our longstanding focus on Appalachian success is on full display in recent Nursing graduate, Elizabeth ’21.

Elizabeth’s story shows the positive impact your gifts have on students and their families who simply need a little help. Learn more about Elizabeth’s Berea story.

All Berea students are worth much more than the tuition they can afford.

No Berea student is ever charged tuition. Unlike other colleges where tuition supplies most of the funding, Berea College depends on loyal alumni and friends who support Tuition Promise Scholarships through the Berea Fund to make a no-tuition education possible for every Berea student.

Berea College’s mission is to provide a world-class education to students who need it most. Help us continue to educate our 1,600 students with a generous gift to the Berea Fund.
