Barry University Scholarship Policies
- Enrollment Policy: To be eligible for a Barry University scholarship, you must be enrolled at the university.
- Disbursement Policy: Scholarships are disbursed in the fall and spring semester following the selection of recipients and are directly credited to the recipients' Barry student accounts. Most annual awards up to $1,000 are credited for the full amount in the fall semester. Awards of $1,000 or more are divided equally between the fall and spring semesters. If a student does not attend a portion of the school year, undisbursed funds are returned to the scholarship fund for a future award.
- Cancellation Policy: Barry University reserves the right to revoke a scholarship if the recipient is found to not meet the published criteria under which the recipient was initially selected.
How Do I Establish A Scholarship Or Donate To An Existing Scholarship?
Scholarship donations or endowments are managed through Barry University's Major Gifts Development department. To learn more about establishing a new scholarship, please call Ms. Bernadine Douglas at 305.981.8182 or visit barry.edu/giving.
