Computer for a dollar program

Are you:

  • without a home computer,
  • enrolled with a minimum of six credit hours for fall semester 2014,
  • in good academic standing (2.0 or higher GPA including developmental classes), and
  • eligible for all or part of the Pell Grant?

If so, please write a complete one-page essay on how owning a computer would help you academically.

Submit the essay along with your email address, student ID number, phone number and home address to the Adult Focus office in Schrank Hall North, Room 260 or send a Word document as an attachment to adultfocus@uakron.edu. The deadline for receipt of this information is Nov. 7. No essays will be accepted after this date. All contact information must be present on essay for consideration.

Eligible students will be contacted by Dec. 5. If you are applying as a first-semester freshman, your application will be held for consideration until grades are posted at the end of fall semester 2014. It is your responsibility to contact Adult Focus with your final grades for the semester. The deadline for end-of-semester contact for first-semester freshmen is Dec. 12.

These are desktop computers. If you have received a computer from this program previously, you are not eligible to participate.
