financial aid & scholarships

Eighty-one percent of our undergraduates receive some form of financial aid, and UA offers $73 million in scholarships and grants each year.


As an applicant, you’ll automatically be considered for merit-based scholarships that range from $1,000 to $7,500 per academic year that help you start and finish college strong. Non-Ohio residents who qualify can earn the $3,000 Akron Advantage Award.


The Zips Affordability Scholarship covers the entire cost of tuition and general fees for eligible students after federal and state grants have been applied.
