The Marguerite Ross Barnett Memorial Scholarship is discontinued effective July 1, 2020.  Phase out of this program began in the 2019-2020 academic year, with awards limited to renewal students only.  The phase-out was originally scheduled to last three to four years.  However, that timeline was accelerated when no funding was allocated for this program during the 2020 legislative session.  The General Assembly must allocate funds for all the state grant and scholarship programs through the legislative budget process.
