Brevard College Academic Scholarships

Your scholarship award is based on your predicted success at Brevard.


Is your unweighted GPA near a 3.0 and your SAT score around 1000? If so, our data tells us that you have what it takes, academically, to thrive in small classrooms with an emphasis on experiential learning. If your GPA and SAT are higher or lower than these averages, you could still receive a merit-based scholarship.


In some cases, a Brevard College award may be reduced due to the addition of a merit or talent award. Some Brevard College awards may be replaced by equivalent donor-based endowed scholarships. These scholarships may require a thank you note and/or participation in a donor dinner or reception.


Half-Tuition Scholarships can combine with Scholarship Day awards, but cannot combine with Academic Scholarship awards.


To apply for Brevard College Scholarships, submit your application for admission today!

Scholarship Day

On Scholarship Day, you'll visit campus and meet faculty, staff, and students. Through this process, you'll determine if Brevard is the perfect fit for you.


You'll attend a scholarship interview, where members of the Brevard College community will get to know you (and you'll get to know them). They will further help you assess your fit and potential for success at Brevard.


Brevard College community members will then recommend additional scholarship dollars to the Admissions and Aid Office. We'll notify you of your additional scholarship eligibility within two weeks of Scholarship Day.

Honors Scholarship

If accepted into the Honors Program, you will receive a $1,000 per-year Honors Program Scholarship. Interviews for the Honors Program take place on Scholarship Day events.
