Donald Glen Barr Scholarship

The Donald Glen Barr Scholarship program was established with a gift from the estate of Donald Glen Barr, a life-long resident of Kahoka, Missouri. The scholarship is intended to provide financial support and a vote of confidence to Clark County R-1 students who are working to improve themselves and their community through postsecondary education.

Recipients may apply for renewal of the award for three additional undergraduate years.

To apply applicants must:

  • be a graduating senior Clark County R-1 High School in Kahoka, Missouri
  • plan to enroll full time in a nonprofit, accredited two or four-year college, university or technical school in the United States
  • demonstrate unmet financial need

Selection Criteria
Recipients will be selected by the St. Louis Community Foundation based on the student’s academic record, the quality of the essay and letter(s) of recommendation, determination of financial need, and consideration of unusual circumstances. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Please answer all questions that apply to you, even if they are not marked “required.”

Application status will be changed from submitted to either offered or denied in June. Applicants can view their status by logging in to their Scholarship Central account. Award checks will be mailed in early August to the college the scholarship recipient will attend. Information about renewal applications will come from the St. Louis Community Foundation.
