Philip Barnard Endowed Scholarship

The Philip Barnard Scholarship was one of the first scholarships established exclusively for students in the MSMR Program. Philip Barnard had a long and successful career in marketing research, leading international research companies and organizations before becoming the first CEO and Chairman of Kantar, one of the world’s largest marketing research companies. This award is reserved for students who distinguish themselves at UT Arlington. Although academic success is a requirement for consideration, that is only one characteristic of past recipients. Award winners have demonstrated leadership, in and out of the classroom, professional success, in internships and beyond the program, volunteerism, and strong individual character.
