Bartoo Endowed Scholarship
The original scholarship was established by Dr. Harriet Bartoo (Barr-toe) in memory of her husband, Dr. Dorr R. Bartoo, a former chairman of Tennessee Technological University's Biology Department. The Bartoo Scholarship is the 2nd oldest continuous student award at Tennessee Technological University, having originated in 1948. The recipient is chosen by the Biology Faculty and is given to the most outstanding junior or senior biology major. The scholarship is based not only on scholastic ability, but also on personal attributes, student and community involvement.
Dr. Bartoo was the first doctor of philosophy to be added to the faculty of Tennessee Tech. He was head of the department of biological science at Tennessee Tech (then known as Tennessee Polytechnic Institute) from 1929 until his death in 1943.
