2015-2016 Merit-Based Scholarships

BSC represents an excellent financial value in higher education. We have been recognized nationally as a "Best Buy" by the Fiske Guide to Colleges and we're ranked among the top 100 "Best Values in Liberal Arts Colleges" in the nation by Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine for combining outstanding academics with great value.

Today's economy has made it more important than ever to make a smart investment in your education. When making your college decision, it's important to know that the college you choose will prepare you for the future.

At Birmingham-Southern College, we have a proven track record of doing just that by giving students the very best in hands-on education. At BSC, you'll have opportunities for internships, research projects, travel, service learning, and mentoring—all to get you on the right track.

When you apply for admission to BSC, you are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships ranging from $13,000 to $27,000 per year. Merit scholarships are awarded based upon scholastic and personal achievement and over 80% of our students receive merit awards.

What if I don't see myself in this grid?

Don't worry! We are searching for interesting, well-rounded students to enrich our community with their diverse talents.

Your engagement and accomplishments outside the classroom, leadership potential, course preparation, class rank, and more will be taken into consideration by our holistic review process. Don't hesitate to apply to Birmingham-Southern College

Additional Scholarships and need-based grants and loans are also available. To be considered for need-based aid, be sure to file the FAFSA by mid-mid-February. For more information, please visit Financial Planning.
