Buckingham, Lisle M. Scholarships
The University Honors Program each year awards Lisle M. Buckingham Scholarships to entering first-year students of superior academic and personal promise. The Buckingham Scholarship provides sufficient funds for tuition and fees, room and board (or, on a needs basis, sufficient funds for reasonable living expenses), so that students can fully engage in scholarship and intellectual pursuits. The Buckingham Scholarship is renewable for four years, providing that the student remains in good standing with the University Honors Program and meets the special requirements of this award.
Recipients of the Buckingham Scholarship, selected by the University Honors Council according to appropriate competitive procedures, are designated as Buckingham Scholars. A Buckingham Scholar, as a member of the University Honors Program, may major in any of The University of Akron’s bachelor degree-granting academic departments or may plan an individualized major in the natural sciences, social sciences, or the humanities.
