The Barton School and WSU Tec have contributed $28,000 in scholarships for WSU Tech students committed to continuing their education with a business degree. The scholarships will be awarded equally to five students over the next two years.

As members of the Shocker Pathway program, these scholarship recipients also receive a unique educational opportunity. It is a coordinated 2+2 program, and students will earn an associate degree at WSU Tech during their first two years and a bachelor’s degree from the WSU Barton School after two more years.

Students will receive an integrated experience with the Barton School while completing their education at WSU Tech. The Barton School will provide career and professional development workshops, exposure to Barton School student clubs and organizations, and invitations to special events and presentations to all in the program.
