At the University of Akron, you are rewarded for your hard work. There’s no need for a separate application. We determine your scholarship eligibility automatically using the materials you submit when you apply for admission. Students with a 3.00 or higher qualify for the Presidential Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded for eight semesters of full-time attendance or until the completion of a bachelor’s degree. The University of Akron operates on a rolling admissions basis.
Our university was built on a hilltop in Akron — a word meaning “the highest point.” For over 150 years, that’s where we’ve set our sights, rising from one peak to another in engineering, business, technology, health care, and the arts and sciences. Bound and determined to meet every challenge, we continue to climb, to forge new paths and reach new heights — and we want you to join us. Throughout their generosity, the University of Akron offers many different types of scholarships for students.
