Morrison Family Foundation Scholarship Fund
The Morrison Family Foundation was founded in the year 2000 by Jack Morrison Jr. and Victoria Lynn Morrison. Jack Morrison Jr. is a graduate of The University of Akron’s College of Business Administration (BS, BA 1977) and a graduate of The University of Akron’s School of Law (JD 1981). The Morrison Family Foundation is devoted to supporting charitable needs within the community, including health, education, and the arts, as well as basic human needs of those less fortunate.
As a uniquely special scholarship award, The Morrison Family Foundation Scholarship Fund will first and foremost afford students the opportunity to learn and grow in their understanding and practice of the law. The Morrison Family Foundation strongly supports the legal profession and its role in promoting justice, preserving the rule of law, and protecting civil liberties, which are at the very foundation of our free society and form of democracy. Furthermore, this scholarship will enhance the quality of The University of Akron School of Law’s educational program and help serve to advance the status and reputation of the School of Law. Through the generous support of The Morrison Family Foundation, and upon the recommendation of the dean of the School of Law annually, a day or evening student with demonstrated academic achievement will be awarded The Morrison Family Foundation Scholarship.
