After canceling the Scholarship Symposium in 2020 because of COVID-19, Bethany adapted the event to a digital format to adhere to health precautions on campus. The Zoom event will feature eight breakout rooms with students presenting simultaneously.

The Scholarship Symposium follows a more than a weeklong Honors celebration, during which Bethany has announced departmental awards recognizing exceptional students. On Thursday, the college will announce its all-campus award winners in a series of social media posts throughout the day. Newly inducted members of campus and departmental honor societies will also be announced.


Bethany College, founded in 1840, is the oldest private college in West Virginia. The Bethany experience focuses on academic excellence in the area of liberal arts and prepares students for a lifetime of work and a life of significance.
