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.


The Scholarship Day Interview Committees will recommend additional scholarship dollar. We'll notify you of your additional scholarship eligibility within two weeks of Scholarship Day.
