The goal of the Barnes-Harris Endowment is to support incoming freshmen from metropolitan public high schools, who are enrolled full-time (12 or more credits each term), and who demonstrate financial need.
The Barnes-Harris Scholarship was established in the names of Marvis Evon Barnes ’59 and Myra Ann Harris '59, Towson University's first African-American graduates. Both Ms. Barnes and Ms. Harris wanted the scholarship, set at a minimum of $500 per academic year, to be awarded to a freshman who possessed “a strong allegiance and has been influence by the African-American culture.”
The scholarship application deadline is Friday, April 30, 2021.
