Casto, Dr. Charles E. Basketball Manager's Scholarship
The Dr. Charles E. Casto Basketball Manager's Scholarship was established in 1995 by Dr. Charles Casto, a 1947 University of Akron graduate who also served as manager for the men's basketball team during his time as a student. Dr. Casto always had an appreciation for the dedication and work ethic needed to be a manager and initiated this fund as a way of annually assisting an individual who, like a student-athlete, must balance the demands of an athletic schedule with classroom work. The recipient should maintain a minimum GPA of 2.5 and should value citizenship and sportsmanship. Selection each year should be made by the head men's basketball coach.
