The Kenmore-Garfield Stark State College Scholarship will provide scholarships for up to two years toward tuition and books for the Kenmore-Garfield Class of 2018 to attend Stark State College in the fall of 2018. To be eligible, students must graduate from Kenmore-Garfield High School, be Pell eligible, reside in the city of Akron, and pursue a full-time certificate or degree at Stark State College.

There will be up to 10 scholarships awarded to 2018 Kenmore-Garfield High School graduates.

This is a pilot program for Akron Promise. Our hope is that this scholarship will be expanded to more students and more Akron Public Schools’ high school graduates in the future.

Akron Promise will continue its efforts to shape a community-involved culture of education which includes providing tuition-free paths to post-secondary degrees and certificates for all students in Akron.
