This scholarship was established in November 2009 by Mrs. Ruth Lamb in memory of her husband, William G. Lamb. It was revised in September 2012 after the passing of Mrs. Lamb. The family wished to honor William and Ruth, recognizing their dedication to academic excellence at The University of Akron. Both Mr. and Mrs. Lamb, who met while attending The University of Akron, are graduates of the CBA. The recipient of the scholarship must have a declared major in business or related field, be enrolled as a full-time student and be active in the community or in campus service. Special consideration will be given to those pursuing self-employment and small business operations or the pre-pharmacy program. All candidates must provide a description of what they intend to do with their degree, as well as a summary of work history and how they are funding their education. Scholarship applications will be reviewed by members of the Lamb family and a University staff member. The scholarship(s) will be awarded based on academic achievement and short written responses. Scholarships may be renewable dependent upon GPA. Thomas and Margaret Lamb, or their designee, will be the final decision makers of the award(s).
