Scholarships & Endowments

Vision 2020 goals include annual increases in Bryan's two major fund-raising campaigns and our endowment:
  • The Bryan Opportunity Program is designed to help make Bryan College accessible to all academically qualified Tennessee students who demonstrate significant financial need.
  • Bryan commits approximately $2.5 million each year to underwrite the tuition assistance that more than 90 percent of our students receive. The Bryan Scholarship Fund helps to offset that major expense.
  • Likewise, Bryan's endowment is a means of securing the financial security of the institution, and Vision 2020 seeks to double the current endowment.
The following table presents current and Vision 2020 goals in these areas:
