The 2022 Scholarship Program

Supporting students by opening doors, and offering access to college scholarships is a part of what we love to do. Our program provides scholarships to eligible students. The amount of each scholarship will be evaluated based on both the academic success of the student and need.

The Akron Urban League awarded and distributed scholarships to local high school seniors graduating in 2021. We had the privilege of awarding 47 scholarships to local students. Additionally, there were 5 "full-ride" scholarships issued.

We rely on the generous support of our community groups, corporations, and higher education institutions to provide scholarships. Thank you for supporting the 2021 graduates!
