Bethel College 125th Anniversary Scholarship
The 1880s saw intense competition among cities to secure colleges, with Newton no exception. The Newton College Association organized in 1887 with the goal of establishing "a nonsectarian but religious college." The association filed a charter establishing Bethel College May 23, 1887.
The founders sought to "pay the debt of gratitude...by opening wide the doors of the institution, so that all may have an opportunity to partake of whatsoever advantages may be offered by it."
In recognition of its being "Newton's college," Bethel is offering a limited-time 125th Anniversary Scholarship exclusively to members of the Newton community.
Residents of Newton or North Newton or students currently attending high school in Newton who enroll at Bethel between now and 2012 are guaranteed $40,000 in institutional scholarships over four years.
You're not required to live on campus if you live at home, and federal and state funds can be stacked on top of this scholarship for those who qualify. Standard admissions requirements apply.
