Mills, W. Paul and Thora J. Endowed Scholarship Fund
The W. Paul and Thora J. Mills Endowed Scholarship Fund was established in 2004 at The University of Akron in memory of W. Paul Mills and Thora J. Mills through the generosity of The W. Paul and Thora J. Mills Foundation.
W. Paul Mills graduated from The University of Akron School of Law in 1930. In recognition of Mr. Mills’ legal career, The W. Paul and Thora Mills Endowed Scholarship Fund was established to provide vital support to students in law school who are striving to create a solid foundation on which to build their legal careers.
The W. Paul and Thora J. Mills Endowed Scholarship Fund will be awarded annually to day or evening law students. The trustees of the Foundation seek to assist students who demonstrate the values of hard work and dedication to their academic careers, with consideration of financial need. The scholarship recipients are selected by the School of Law Scholarship Committee.
The School of Law is grateful to W. Paul and Thora J. Mills and The W. Paul and Thora J. Mills Foundation trustees for creating The W. Paul and Thora J. Mills Endowed Scholarship Fund. This fund is a legacy to Mr. and Mrs. Mills and will perpetuate their spirit of good will and generosity.
