The Barnhill Family has established a scholarship program to assist dependent children and dependent grandchildren of Barnhill Contracting Company employees who plan to continue their education in college.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.
Applicants to the Barnhill Family Scholarship Program must:
Up to four (4) awards of $5,000 each will be granted to the top-ranked students attending a four-year school. Up to four (4) awards of $2,000 each will be granted to the top-ranked students attending a two-year community or junior college. If there are not adequate qualified applicants for an award category, Sponsor may allocate additional awards of $2,000 to the other category up to the authorized distribution amount.
Two-year school awards are renewable one year and four-year university or college awards are renewable up to three years or until a degree is earned, whichever occurs first, on the basis of satisfactory academic performance and continued parental, grandparent, or guardian employment. A two-year award recipient may reapply for a four-year award upon completion of a two-year degree program. The maximum number of years a recipient may receive an award is four years.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
