Brighthouse Fellows Program

Students talking in a classroom

Johnson & Wales University students are go-getters. They believe in collaboration, putting classwork to work in the real world, and that the pursuit of excellence is worthwhile and within their grasp.

The Brighthouse Fellows (BHF) program is designed with the high-achieving, highly motivated JWU student in mind. Offered in partnership with Brighthouse Financial, this scholarship is available to JWU Charlotte students enrolled in the Honors Program. The Fellows will also have the opportunity to participate in enriching social, educational, cultural, and service activities to broaden their college experience and increase their connection to the university and community.
