The mission of the Student Financial Aid Program is:
- To provide, through various forms of financial aid, an educational opportunity primarily for students from Appalachia, black and white, women and men, who have great promise and limited economic resources.
- To support, through the awarding of financial aid, a residential, democratic community culture in which economic and social distinctions are minimal.
Our office’s goals:
- To provide financial aid needed, beyond the family and student’s own contribution, to meet the basic costs of education.
- To provide financial aid based on need (within available College and federal aid resources and policies) to help meet some of the additional costs of off-campus study courses, including education abroad, that are part of the student’s program of study at Berea College.
- To provide financial aid based on need (within available college and federal aid resources and policies) for off-campus jobs that provide earnings for self-help and experiences related to community service, academic program of study, and career goals.
- To provide educational programs for students and others on financial aid opportunities, policies, and practices to increase community understanding.
