Scholarships Change Lives


Many students today cannot afford the cost of a college education and rely on the availability of scholarships and other sources of financial aid to pursue their dream of achieving a college degree in their field of interest. The University of Akron is proud of its top-notch Department of Economics, whose alumni and friends are especially mindful of students' needs.

This fall we are launching the Economics Alumni Scholarship with the goal of offering support to deserving economics majors and to recruit well-qualified new majors into one of the Department's under-graduate programs. Our five-year goal is to build an Economics Alumni Scholarship endowment of $100,000. An endowment of this magnitude will permit the Department to award $5,000 in scholarships annually.  In our Department newsletter you can meet some of our majors and learn how scholarships even in modest amounts can help finance their education.

To donate go on-line to  Be sure to specify your gift be directed to the Dilley Family Endowed Scholarship in Economics or the Lung-ho Lin Scholarship Fund.

Many Thanks!
