Barnes-Harris Scholarship Endowment

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 $500 per academic year, to be awarded to a freshman who possessed “a strong allegiance to the African-American culture.”
