Barnes Group Foundation Scholarship Program

The Barnes Group Foundation, Inc. has established a scholarship program to assist the children of Barnes Group employees who plan to pursue post-secondary education by enrolling in college or a technical vocational program. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.

Applicants must be children of active or deceased Barnes Group Inc. Worldwide employees.

  • Eligible children are defined as age 30 or under.
  • Active employees must have been employed by the company six months as of the application deadline date (March 1st).
  • Children of an employee who died while actively employed are eligible, provided that the employee had at least five years of service at date of death, and that the child applies for a scholarship within five years of the employee’s death.

Applicants must be students who are enrolled or planning to enroll in a full-time course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, vocational-technical school or graduate school.

Scholarships will be awarded for graduate study in addition to undergraduate study. For your convenience, applications will continue to be accepted online.

Beginning in 2019, the age requirement for eligible children has been increased from age 26 to 30!  If selected as a recipient, students will receive an award ranging from $3,000 to $10,000 (U.S. dollars)! 

In accordance with United States tax laws, we are limited to granting awards to only 25% of our eligible applicants. Therefore, the more eligible applicants we receive, the more scholarships we can grant, so please apply today! Even if you have previously applied and did not receive a scholarship, we encourage you to apply again, as you are still eligible to receive an award!

Undergraduate awards are renewable up to three years or until a bachelor’s degree, or equivalent is earned, whichever occurs first. Graduate awards are renewable one time or until graduate degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon maintaining at least a 2.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale in full-time study and continuation of the program by Barnes Group Foundation, Inc.

International students are strongly encouraged to apply. Awards can be used for education related expenses (tuition, fees, books, supplies, room/board and transportation).

Scholarship America will select three to five (3-5) recipients who have a GPA of 2.5 – 3.0 as long as there are qualified applicants.
