Money Magazine names Bethany College as one of 44 programs in 24 states where residents have access to at least two years of free college tuition in their October 2017 issue. In the article, “All the Places You Can Go to College for Free”, the Bethany Good Life Scholarship is the sole mention of a scholarship of its kind in Kansas.
The Bethany Good Life Scholarship is made possible through the generous donations of many of the college’s local donors. The four-year, tuition-free scholarship is available to first-time college freshmen graduating from any McPherson or Saline County high school upon acceptance into Bethany College. Recipients of the scholarship are required to live on-campus.
“Bethany wants to make a strong investment in our community,” President Jones said. “These scholarships will give young people in our home counties an opportunity to attend college close to home and hopefully keep them in our area after they graduate. A strong local community makes for a strong Bethany College and a strong Bethany College makes for a strong local community.”
The list is compiled from information from the Upjohn Institute, the Campaign for Free College Tuition, and the College Promise Campaign.
