Bentley is dedicated to providing as much aid to as many gifted students as possible — to create the strongest, most diverse classes, an environment that’s rich in talent, and every opportunity imaginable for those who’ve worked hard and truly deserve this exceptional experience.
The Bentley Fund supports students right now. Make sure they have the same Bentley experience — the teachers, classes, internships, clubs, sports and lifelong friendships — that generations of Falcons have. Give back by making a gift to the Bentley Fund today, and help students make these years the most transformative of their lives!
I couldn’t have come to Bentley without financial aid; I got a lot of help. It’s only been a couple of months, but I’ve learned so much and made so many awesome friends. This is my school, and I can’t imagine not being here.

Financial aid and scholarships allow Bentley to welcome the best and brightest students to each incoming class — and stay competitive with our peer schools.
We connected on our class’s Facebook page, because we both have a Golden Retriever named Scout and we’re both in the Honors Program. We were like, ‘Roommates!’ Over the summer, Kerri came to Boston and we did a Target run to decorate our room. We feel really lucky to have found each other.

The Class of 2023 hails from 37 countries and 34 states. Twenty percent are the first in their family to go to college. And 30% identify as African American, Latino, Asian/Asian American and Native American (ALANA).
If it weren’t for Career Services, junior year would have been a rude awakening! But they have classes and mentors and drop-in hours all of the time — they give us a foundation from day one, so I’ve had internships in the fields that drive me. And I’ve already accepted a position for the summer.

Ninety-two percent of students complete at least one internship during their Bentley career — not surprising, considering Undergraduate Career Services is No. 1 in the nation according to the Princeton Review.
I made my first gift in 1995. I have been giving ever since — at whatever level my circumstances allow, because I now know why this matters.
