Questions
Is this scholarship available to current students (not just new students)?
Yes! All students who are enrolled in BYU-Pathway Worldwide's foundational PathwayConnect courses are eligible to receive the Heber J. Grant scholarship. To get your scholarship award, you must complete an informational module through the BYU-Pathway Portal. This module is available after you register for courses.
How long can I receive the Heber J. Grant Scholarship?
Recipients of the Heber J. Grant Scholarship will continue to receive it every semester that they are enrolled in BYU-Pathway’s foundational PathwayConnect courses (typically 2–3 terms).

Are there other scholarships available?
Yes! BYU-Pathway Worldwide offers several scholarships. Currently all scholarships are only available to students enrolled in BYU-Pathway Worldwide's foundational PathwayConnect courses. In addition to the Heber J. Grant scholarship, here are some others:

  • Returned Missionary Scholarship: Any student who has returned from a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during the past 60 months is eligible for a 25% tuition discount. (This includes missionaries who did not complete their entire mission.) This scholarship applies only to PathwayConnect courses.
  • Needs-based Scholarship: Once enrolled, students can work with an assigned mentor, who will help determine if the student is eligible for a needs-based scholarship. (This scholarship is limited to one semester during the first year of enrollment.)
  • Reduced Tuition: The price of tuition for students who start their degree through BYU-Pathway Worldwide’s PathwayConnect is significantly reduced. Reduced tuition is automatically given to every student who starts their degree through PathwayConnect — and you keep the lower cost for your entire degree program! View tuition rates.
