The Bryan Opportunity Program (BOP) is designed to help make Bryan College accessible to all academically qualified Tennessee students who demonstrate significant financial need. The program is a guarantee that eligible students will receive scholarship and/or grant funds from federal, state and/or institutional sources which meet or exceed the cost of tuition, room and board (if applicable) at Bryan College.
