Bartley, David W. and Dr. Alise G. Scholarship Fund
The David W. and Dr. Alise G. Bartley Scholarship Fund was established at The University of Akron in 2015, through a generous gift from the Bartley family. Dr. Bartley is a UA alumna who earned a Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy. She has worked in private practice for many years while teaching at the University. Dr. Bartley’s affinity for The University of Akron and its students and her belief in the importance of higher education have led her and her husband to establish this scholarship.
The fund will provide annual scholarships for first- and second-year doctoral students enrolled in The University of Akron Department of Counseling. Preference will be given to students enrolled in the Marriage and Family Therapy program. Preference also will be given to students who are not graduate assistants at the time of selection. Recipients may receive this scholarship only once. The Department of Counseling will submit a list of applicants to Dr. Bartley, who will select the scholarship recipients. The recipient(s) will be approved by the Office of Student Financial Aid.
