Read, Roger and Judy Project GRAD Scholarships
The Roger and Judy Read Project GRAD Scholarships are funded by Mr. and Mrs. Read through their dedication as alumni of Buchtel High School. In 2004, Mr. and Mrs. Read demonstrated their belief in and commitment to Project GRAD Akron by offering the Read Challenge Grant to motivate other alumni and friends of Buchtel High School to make scholarship awards available to graduating students who meet key Project GRAD Akron criteria.
Individuals eligible for The Roger and Judy Read Project GRAD Scholarships must have graduated from Buchtel High School and be officially recommended by Project GRAD Akron to receive the scholarship awards. Scholarship awards shall be made in the amount and duration determined by Project GRAD Akron. If a student is unable to use the full scholarship award within four consecutive years, the funds then become available for another Buchtel High School student recommended as a scholarship recipient by Project GRAD Akron.
