Grants and Scholarships
At Brown College, new and returning students, who meet eligibility criteria, are encouraged to pursue a number of institutional grants and scholarships, as well as outside scholarships and scholarship competitions. You can also find comprehensive, up-to-date information on institutional grant and scholarship programs in the Financial Aid section of our school catalog.
If at any point in the process you have questions or need more information, a Brown College financial aid representative will be available to provide assistance.
Student Ambassador Scholarship
Brown College offers Student Ambassador Scholarships to students who are active participants in the Student Ambassador Program and have remained in good standing for no less than two consecutive months. The Student Ambassador must submit two letters of recommendation from their instructors and a one-page essay describing their experience as a Student Ambassador and how they have benefited from the program.
Each quarter, the selection committee will select a maximum of two students to be awarded a $250 scholarship. Any single student can only be awarded this scholarship once during their time of study. Scholarship applications will be evaluated as they are received. Once the maximum number of scholarships is awarded for the quarter, no additional scholarships will be awarded for that quarter.
Scholarship funds are non-transferable and non-refundable to the student. If a student’s enrollment is canceled or the student withdraws or otherwise terminates his/her attendance at the school prior to the use of his/her entire scholarship, the remaining funds will be retained by the School.
Workforce Development Scholarship
Brown College has entered into an agreement with selected local area employers to provide a scholarship to selected employees of these providers of up to $2,000 per academic year, in order to assist these students with the opportunity to attend a program of study at Brown College.
To be eligible for the Workforce Development Scholarship Program, a candidate must meet the admissions requirements as stated in the catalog and be accepted for admission to Brown College, provide verification of employment with an eligible employer and complete the Workforce Development Scholarship acknowledgement form that details the terms and conditions of the Scholarship.
If you work for a local employer, you may contact the Campus Director or President to inquire whether your employer has entered into an agreement with the school and you might be an eligible candidate.
