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

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

A Message from the Past

In 1925, Bruce Barton penned a letter to 24 affluent individuals requesting their financial support on behalf of Berea College. Barton’s message was successful, raising more than $25,000 to support student tuition. We current Bereans are still inspired by his impassioned appeal, and our hope is that it will inspire you.
