Barancik Access Leadership Scholarship: A New College program created to engage and support high potential talent from underrepresented populations. The Access Leadership Initiative and the Barancik Scholarship were created in 2020, funded by a grant from the Charles and Margery Barancik Foundation. It is intended to reduce or eliminate financial barriers that might otherwise prevent a Manatee or Sarasota County high school student from benefitting from the exceptional preparation for future success and leadership that a New College education can provide. Scholarship amounts: up to $7500 for students residing on campus, up to $2500 for students residing off campus. Amounts for scholarship funding may vary each year, according to other gift aid in the student financial aid package, and annual eligibility for need-based gift aid as determined by the FAFSA. Total financial aid package may not exceed the Cost of Attendance. The scholarship application for transfer students is due June 7, 2020.
