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.

To download an application, visit ,, or contact the High School guidance counselor. The deadline to apply is Friday, April 15 (postmark).  For more information call the Tucker Community Foundation office at 304-478-2930.
