Bethel College will offer $1,000 matching grants to students who receive a Granger Business Association Scholarship. Recipients are chosen by the GBA based on criteria such as academics, extra-curricular activities, volunteer work, and personal narratives. Ten students were awarded last year.
The grants from Bethel serve in an effort to encourage students to actively participate in leadership development activities, as well as academic and creative endeavors.
All students who apply to Bethel may be considered for other awards as well, such as renewable academic scholarships ranging from $2,500 to full-tuition. Bethel also offers a Billy Kirk Leadership award annually as well as a number of other grants to students who meet eligibility.
Bethel College is an accredited Christian college of the arts and sciences offering associates, bachelor's and master's degrees in more than 50 areas of study. The current enrollment of more than 2,000 includes students from 34 states and Puerto Rico, 12 countries, more than 25 denominations and 16 percent from culturally diverse backgrounds. Scholarships are available based upon a variety of factors including academic achievement, talent in the arts or athletics, ethnicity and church affiliation. Bethel offers classes at four locations: the Mishawaka campus, the Elkhart Campus and two satellite locations (in Nappanee and in Dowagiac, Mich.). The main Bethel campus is situated on 75 wooded acres in Mishawaka, Ind.
