Scholarships and Financial Aid

Immeasurable impact for generations of students

Most families spend years saving for college and all that comes with it. Tuition and room and board, books and supplies, sports and study abroad. But even the best planning doesn’t fully prepare a family when their child has earned acceptance to an education a cut above the rest, like Bentley. How do we bridge the gap that separates Bentley from our competitors, who are able to offer more aid to worthy students? With support from alumni, families and friends.

Scholarship Priorities


Financial Aid

The difference between Bentley and our competition — and, in some cases, no college at all. Helping us attract the best and brightest with competitive packages.

Honors Program

The students who raise the bar for all of us.

Service-Learning and Civic Engagement

A sense of responsibility that redefines the bottom line.

Bentley is dedicated to providing as much aid as possible to as many gifted students as possible.

This commitment helps us create the strongest, most diverse classes, an environment that's rich in talent, and every opportunity imaginable for those who've worked hard and truly deserve this exceptional experience.

That's where scholarships — and the generous donors who create them — come in. Current use or endowed, awarded to students of outstanding merit or a designation of your own design, named in honor of a loved one or your own achievements, Bentley scholarships are invaluable gifts from generous alumni and friends.

The day I got my acceptance email from Bentley, I thought: Please, somebody pinch me. Now I’m here and it feels like a dream. Classmates who love learning. Awesome clubs and my upcoming internship at Travelers. I thank my donors with all my heart. This scholarship is the best thing that’s ever happened to me, and I will continue working hard to make sure my Bentley education isn’t taken for granted.

If I could say anything to my donors, I would start by giving them a hug. And then I would say thank you, from myself and my family. My parents immigrated to the United States from the Philippines in their twenties and the only thing they wanted for their children was to see them receive a great education that would support them in life. And here I am, starting a job at the Federal Reserve of New York. I can't thank my scholarship donors enough.

Raising the bar for worthy students starts with each of us raising a hand.
