Bethel University announces Pilot Promise, a new program providing 100% tuition coverage for qualifying Indiana students.

The program, which will kick off in fall 2024, is open to new and transfer traditional undergraduate students.

“The Pilot Promise will help to supplement the already significant investment Bethel University has made in making a Christ-centered education affordable for Indiana residents,” says Barbara K. Bellefeuille, Ed., president of Bethel University.

The Pilot Promise will be awarded to first-time or transfer students entering fall 2024 who are residents of Indiana and living on campus. They must also be eligible for the full Federal Pell Grant and full Indiana State Grant, as determined by their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application. Qualifying students must apply for admission to Bethel University and complete the 2024-25 FAFSA by April 15, 2024, in order to be eligible.
