Barton Community College and the Barton Foundation have announced their scholarship deadlines for the 2023-2024 school year.
The Barton Foundation offers over 150 scholarships and the priority deadline to apply is March 15 with a final deadline of Aug. 31.
Executive Director of Institutional Advancement Lindsey Bogner said thanks to the generosity of numerous donors, there are exciting opportunities available for current and potential students.
“Every Barton student - and I mean every student, is eligible for Foundation scholarships,” she said. “We take a lot of care to match students to dollars that can improve their college experience and increase their chances of finishing their education on time and costing less. Prospective students must apply at apply.bartonccc.edu and they will then have access to the foundation scholarship application.”
In addition to Foundation scholarships, Institutional scholarships are available through the college’s Barton Bound program with a deadline of Aug. 1. Barton Bound awards are available to first-time students graduating from a Kansas high school the previous academic year. The Barton Bound Program offers three awards:
Excellence Scholarship: Full tuition and books scholarship for recent Kansas high school graduates with a GPA of 3.5 and above
Honor Scholarship: $1,000 for a GPA of 3.0-3.49
Achievement Scholarship: $700 for a GPA of 2.5-2.99
Director of Admissions Tana Cooper said the Barton Bound scholarships are an excellent way for students to reduce or eliminate student debt by coming to Barton.
“Our goal is to help our students get ready to enter the workforce or move on to the next step of their education without having to worry so much about the financial aspect,” she said.
