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.
The Choose Ohio First STEMM Scholarship Program helps to increase more students to graduate in the science, technology, engineering, mathematics and healthcare fields from the University of Akron. To be eligible for the Choose Ohio First STEMM Scholarship, applicants must: be an Ohio resident; major in a STEMM field (see website for eligible majors); be a incoming freshman, current college student changing to a qualifying STEMM major, transfer student or non-traditional student; have a 3.0 GPA; and be enrolled full-time. Dollar amounts will vary. Applications are open yearly from Oct. 1 to January 31 for the next academic year.
