About the Cathy Barlow Scholarship Fund:
The Cathy Barlow Scholarship Fund was established in honor of former Watson College Dean and current UNCW Vice Provost Cathy Barlow in 2011. A specific goal of the scholarship fund is to provide financial assistance to students during the final internship semester, when it’s very difficult to work a paying job and still succeed at full-time work in the classroom. Scholarships enable students to focus on being the best teachers they can be during the critical last semester before graduation.
