Student Tuition and Education Partners (STEP)

Every Berea student’s full-tuition scholarship depends on alumni and friends like you.

Gifts from alumni and friends are necessary to provide about $3,000 per student to complete the funding of each full-tuition scholarship. STEP gifts ($3,000 or more) to the Berea Fund provide the remainder of the amount needed for at least one student.

I recognize that in a time of financial uncertainty, the need for Berea to continue its mission of serving students is even greater. I think it’s very important to give a little extra to help today’s students.

I’m supporting Berea with a STEP gift because all students work to earn their degree. When I learned that $3,000 is needed to complete one student’s full-tuition scholarship, I chose to make the gift to honor my late mother.

I’m giving this gift because I believe in Berea.
