The Baker Trust Scholarship Program

Trustees of the George F. Baker Fund established this scholarship program to help students in Georgetown College who wish to participate in the Baker Scholars Program who demonstrate financial need for grant aid.

The Baker Scholars Program and the Baker Scholarships are designed to attract young men and women trained in the liberal arts to careers in business. Students can apply for the Baker Scholars Program by completing the applications on the College Dean's website.

Baker Scholars who demonstrate financial need receive scholarship assistance through the program. Baker Scholars can be considered for Baker scholarship awards by completing Georgetown's standard need-based financial aid applications.
