Alice Barton Scholarship


The Alice Barton Scholarship Program, part of the Iowa Coalition Against Domestic Violence, works to empower survivors of domestic violence through education and job training.  Economic abuse is a common and effective tactic that batterers use to control their victims. Financial barriers persist even after a victim successfully leaves their abuser. By enabling victims to gain new knowledge and skills, the Alice Barton Scholarship Program helps victims increase their self-confidence, find better employment, and achieve economic independence.
