Scholarships & Financial Aid

Affordable access to excellence is the foundation of Bright College’s mission.

Our innovative learning programs are effective because students and their families aren’t burdened by worries about the cost of college.

With $250,000 in available scholarships, we have the resources to support a better way to do college. The combination of Drake scholarships with federal and state need-based grants means that students from low-income families will be able to afford Bright College tuition with minimal or no debt.

After deducting the “Estimated Family Contribution” (EFC) as calculated by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), most if not all of the remaining tuition for Bright College will be covered by scholarships and grants. Students should ensure they complete the FAFSA prior to June 1st.

If desired, Federal Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized Student Loans are available to cover any remaining costs. Federal Direct Subsidized Loans don’t accrue any interest while a student is enrolled on at least a half-time basis.

College financial planning can be overwhelming, but our team is here to help. To see exactly what your cost might look like to attend Bright College, submit a free admission application and complete the FAFSA.
