ExperienceEach student receives the equivalent of a Tuition Promise Scholarship worth $24,300, or $97,200 for four years. That’s right: no student pays tuition.Berea offers a nationally recognized labor program in which all students participate; Berea is one of seven federally recognized Work Colleges.


Berea College is serving parts of Southeastern Kentucky as an AIRffiliate. In 2015 Partners For Education, the Brushy Fork Institute, and Student Crafts came together to implement AIR programs. An AIR:Shift Workshop was held at the 2015 Brushy Fork Institute and in April 2016, Partners For Education will pilot an AIR:Shift Workshop for Clay County, Kentucky.
