There are many scholarship opportunities available to help eligible students fund their education. Scholarships could lower the price of your education and, unlike student loans, do not need to be repaid. In most cases, the funds received apply directly toward paying your tuition.
Brightwood Career Institute encourages you to seek outside sources for scholarship aid. The following websites allow you to search and apply for private scholarships:
Other scholarship search sites exist, but beware of fraudulent sites or those that charge for their services. Visit our Fraud Disclosure page for more about scholarship scams.
Brightwood Career Institute cannot guarantee that students will be eligible to receive any scholarship. It is the student’s responsibility to carefully review the requirements for any scholarships of interest.
Outside scholarships are funds you receive from public and private agencies to pay for a portion or all of your tuition, fees, or required textbooks. You must apply for these scholarships through a separate process.
When a private agency pays a portion of your tuition, fees, or required textbooks, this is considered third-party billing. The agency will receive a bill directly from Brightwood Career Institute and send the payment directly to the School (not to you, the student).
Scholarship third-party billing is only available as an option if the student/private agency provides the necessary tuition assistance documents prior to each term of enrollment. The tuition assistance documents must meet all standard requirements and will provide Brightwood Career Institute with direct bill authorization. If the private agency determines you are no longer eligible to receive a scholarship, you will be responsible for paying the tuition balance.
To have a private agency approved for direct billing, please contact your campus to provide the following information:
At Brightwood Career Institute, we want to help you meet your future goals. That is why each academic year, we offer graduating high school seniors the opportunity to be awarded scholarships toward their tuition at their chosen Brightwood Career Institute campus.*
High school scholarships are awarded at our campuses and are based on student interest, academic excellence, and demonstrated motivation. Scholarships are limited and an applicant must meet the following requirements to be eligible:
Our scholarship program determines award recipients in two phases. Applicants will first take a competitive examination to measure educational competency. Top-scoring finalists will then be interviewed by a panel of judges.
Awards are based on student interest, academic excellence, and demonstrated motivation. Students interested in applying for these scholarships should contact their high school guidance counselor or Brightwood Career Institute.
* Scholarship opportunities may be dependent on a student’s chosen course of study. The number of scholarships to be awarded, scholarship amounts, and other details can be found in the campus Course Catalog or by contacting the School. All applicants are subject to policies for scholarship as established in the Catalog. Other terms and conditions may also apply. Scholarship funds will be applied to tuition and will not be given directly to the student and cannot be transferred to a second party. A scholarship is not a premium, special endorsement, or discount. The School has the right to withdraw any scholarship offer at any time.
