Scholarships for Entering Students

Scholarships for Continuing Students

Continuing undergraduate campus students are automatically considered for specific awards during their tenure with Berklee, such as the Thrive Scholarship and division awards. 

Berklee Online continuing students can apply for a scholarship if they've earned 90 credits towards an online degree and meet the other eligibility criteria.

Berklee Institutional Aid Appeal Grants

We recognize that due to extenuating circumstances you may experience temporary challenges affecting your financing plan. Berklee allows all campus-based students to submit an institutional aid appeal to be considered for temporary need-based institutional funding. Domestic students are encouraged to FAFSA on file and exhaust all other forms of funding, and international students must have a CSS Profile on file for their appeal to be considered.

Berklee Online students are not eligible to submit a special circumstance appeal.
