Life changing opportunities which will impact their future and therefore the future of their communities await students of all ages at Barton Community College. However, as with any mission of noble intent, it does not just happen. It comes from the hard work and planning not only of our students, but also of a core of volunteers and community leaders willing to make a commitment to Barton Community College.
The Foundation only awards academic scholarships, not athletic scholarships. Any or all students are invited to apply for a scholarship but have to meet the College's requirements and application time line. We encourage students to visit the financial aid website for more details on scholarships at Barton Community College.
In addition to academic scholarships, the Foundation also provides program enhancements to benefit the college and its students. For example, we purchased a 2008 Toyota Camry hybrid car for the Auto-Technology department; funded faculty mini-grants from the proceeds of the Sporting Clay Shoot; assisted in obtaining a grant to purchase a simulation lab for the Nursing department; and through the Kirkman Endowment made ADA improvements providing better accessibility to the Fine Arts Building.
Our Foundation has several ways to receive gifts from donors and can assist you in your gift-giving decision. Please look at some of the most common ways of giving your support and if none of these traditional donation resources fit your personal desire, please contact us so we can visit with you in your endeavor to assist the College and its students.
