Each year, our Walter S. Barr Scholarships are awarded to residents of Hampden County who attend any of the region’s public or private secondary schools. See the list of eligible high schools.
These high school senior scholarship awards are determined using available information including school records, college entrance examination scores, general attainments, recommendations and financial need. The awards continue through the four-year course if justified by the student’s record and need. Scholarships are granted in the amount of $3,000 per academic year, paid in two installments each semester, and carry a maximum value of $12,000. Scholarships are automatically renewed each year provided a minimum GPA of 3.0 is maintained.
