College Scholarships

The University of Akron is proud to offer an exceptional education that is accessible through scholarships and financial aid opportunities. Scholarships are available for students in the College of Engineering and Polymer Science throughout their college career as they continue to demonstrate academic success. We encourage students in good academic standing to apply for engineering scholarships.

Donor-Named Scholarships

We are thankful for the generosity of our alumni, friends, and industry partners who have invested in our students by establishing these scholarships.

All students in the College of Engineering and Polymer Science, including incoming first-year students, transfer students and current students, are welcome to apply every year.

The College manages 440 donor-named scholarships totaling $838,000 that are given out to students each year. 

Note: If you are chosen for a scholarship for the upcoming academic year, you will receive a congratulatory email in the spring. 

Incoming and current students have the opportunity to apply for scholarships yearly, from late fall to early spring, for scholarships in the following academic year. Watch this page in fall 2022 for information on how to apply for the 2023 – 2024 school year!
