The campus center at The University of Akron



UA offers thousands of scholarships and awards -- more than $32 million each year in scholarship aid. Awards range from hundreds of dollars to complete, full-ride academic scholarships.

UA strives to address the financial needs of as many students as possible. By setting a scholarship maximum ("cap"), the University is able to help more students achieve their goals by distributing scholarships broadly to a greater number of students. Scholarships awarded by the University, including general institutional scholarships and private/named and endowed scholarships are all subject to the established scholarship "cap." A student's combination of all University-awarded scholarships for the year cannot exceed the cap which is determined when they enter the University as a freshman. For freshmen students entering in Fall 2017 or later, the scholarship cap is $11,000 annually. For additional information regarding the scholarship cap, please contact the Office of Student Financial Aid.
