A new scholarship will help new out-of-state students attend Bryan College beginning next fall, Financial Aid Director Rick Taphorn has announced.


The Good Neighbor Scholarship, which offers a $3,000 award, is designed for incoming freshmen not from Tennessee who have financial need. “We are really excited about this new opportunity to help students afford to come to Bryan,” Mr. Taphorn said. “Now students who live out-of-state and have financial need have another option to help them attend Bryan.”


To be eligible, a student must be a spring 2009 high school graduate, have a cumulative high school grade average of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale and an ACT score of at least 21 or an SAT reading/math score of at least 980.


To apply for the Good Neighbor Scholarship, a student must complete the Bryan admissions application and scholarship application, as well as the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Links to these forms can be found at Also, the applicant must submit an essay of 100 to 500 words explaining why additional financial aid should be provided. All submissions must be received by March 31, 2009, and recipients will be notified beginning April 15. The scholarship is renewable annually.
