Work Scholarship Program
Bethany’s Work Scholarship Program enables students to work at the Bethany campus
to pay for their registration fees, tuition and room and board.
Students work 40 hours per week during the summer and 22 hours per week during the school
year in exchange for the cost of one year of schooling.
Work Scholarship duties begin the Monday following (the previous school year’s)
graduation in May.
Students are accepted into the program in the spring. A limited number of positions are
available in the Work Scholarship Program. Current students are given preference; incoming
students must submit their application for the program by March 1.
Note: This program is designed for unmarried students living in the dormitory,
and is not open to international students.
Partial Work Scholarship Program
Students who are not able to join the Work Scholarship Program in May may be
eligible for the Partial Work Scholarship Program.
During the school year, students in the Partial Work Scholarship Program may work additional
hours beyond the 12 hours per week required of all students. Students are paid minimum wage for
any additional hours worked, which is credited as payment toward their tuition. Students may
choose the number of additional hours they would like to work (Minimum 8 hours/Maximum 12 hours).
Bethany is approved by the New York State Division of Veterans’ Affairs for the
training of veterans and other eligible persons for the Biblical Studies, Advanced Biblical Studies
and Short-Term Certificate Programs.
