Samuel M. and Ethel L. Chambers Scholarship

The Samuel M. and Ethel L. Chambers Scholarship was established in 2006 by loving son, W. Gary Chambers and, in part, by the family residential construction business, Heritage Economic Redevelopment. Gary Chambers is a 1989 graduate of The University of Akron and active alumnus. The Chambers Scholarship, given in memory of Gary's parents, is directed to African-American students in the Construction Engineering Technology program in The College of Applied Science and Technology. The recipient(s) may be enrolled in either the 2- or 4-year program.

All applicants must complete a short essay explaining what they hope to accomplish in their field, should have a minimum 2.5 high school grade point average, and be accepted and enrolled in the Construction Engineering Technology program. Applications are due April 1. Finalists will be interviewed by the scholarship committee, which consists of the chair of the Construction Engineering Technology program, and W. Gary Chambers or another designated member of the Chambers family.
