Barrow Scholars

In keeping with the wishes of Miss B, The Barbara Barrow Foundation provides bursaries to assist worthy students to attend the College. The Trustees of the Foundation have attempted to develop eligibility criteria so as to select recipients who Miss B would likely have picked herself. Barrow Scholars are competent students whose academic proficiency enables them to achieve better than average grades while making significant contributions to College life in athletics, the arts and service.

Here are just a few examples of the achievements of Barrow Scholars during their time at UCC and since graduating from the College:
