The value of a Blackburn education is made available to students from all economic backgrounds through generous financial aid packages.

Merit-Based Scholarships

All students who apply for admission are considered for scholarships based on academic performance. The awarding of merit-based scholarships is the responsibility of the Office of Admission. During the admissions application process, a Committee will review the student’s academic credentials and award merit-based scholarships based on the combination of the student’s cumulative GPA and residency status. Merit-based scholarships include the BC Scholarship and BC Grant.
