Barbour and Tucker Community Foundation Scholarships Available
March 7, 2017 – For the 2017 scholarship cycle the Barbour County Community Foundation and the Tucker Community Foundation have decided to do a joint application for their scholarships for students in Barbour County. This will allow a student, either high school, college, or non-traditional, to apply for over 50 different scholarships.
More than $75,000 will be awarded from endowed scholarship funds, pass-through donations, and unrestricted income of the Foundations. Applicants are encouraged to apply even if their educational needs do not align with a particular fund. Awards will range from $500 to $10,000, with most in the $1,000 range.
New this year, the Tucker Community Foundation will be awarding a $10,000 Smith and Patterson Pass-Through Scholarship. The award is intended for a student enrolling in post-secondary education or a trade school. Good grades are important but not the only criteria; work experience or volunteer experience is considered, and financial need is a consideration.
The W. Robert and Dolores J. McDaniel Scholarship will help a Philip Barbour High School graduate attend the nursing program at Alderson Broaddus University. The one year scholarship is for over $1,000 per semester.
High school seniors, college students, students attending technical schools and other non-traditional students (e.g., adults returning to school) are encouraged to apply for a scholarship regardless of their field of study.
