Graduate Assistantships, Scholarships, and Financial Aid
In support of academic excellence, both The University of Akron and the College of Business Administration offer a wide variety of scholarships and other opportunities to help students in their educational pursuits. These scholarships are provided by corporations, foundations, professional organizations, faculty, alumni and other individuals.
Students admitted to a CBA degree program may be eligible for a Graduate Assistantship. A graduate assistant position is an arrangement in which a full-time graduate student works as a computer lab assistant, instructional support assistant, or research assistant (very few research assistantships are awarded). In return, the graduate assistant is awarded a stipend and tuition benefits. Go to the Graduate Assistants page for additional information and eligibility, or review a Fact Sheet (pdf).
