BUILD Application Process

The BUILD application process begins with an invitation to qualified incoming freshmen of any major. Trustee and presidential scholars are considered for candidacy based upon academic achievement and leadership potential. Each year 10-12 incoming freshmen are invited to participate in the program and those accepted must live on campus. BUILD students receive a $1,000 tuition scholarship, which is renew­able annually based upon participation in the program. This award is in addition to any other Bethel scholarships offered and cannot be used to exceed full tuition.
