Introducing the Akron Polymer Student Endowed Scholarship
Faculty members in the School of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering (SPSPE) take tremendous pride in the work their students produce, and they go to great lengths in providing monies via grants to provide them with support. On occasion, a student will need more time to complete their degree than what was planned, or a grant may not be renewed, leaving faculty members and students in a financial dilemma.
For the sake of our students we have therefore established the Akron Polymer Student Endowed Scholarship; a scholarship created to provide funding for students in SPSPE to be able to complete their Ph.D. study when a need arises. Perhaps you also found yourself in need of contingency support while in college?
We thank you for your consideration and generous donation, which provides support to our students on their way to change the world!

"During my internships at the National Chemical Laboratory, Pune and 3M India, I met polymer researchers who were either CPSPE alumni or were associated with Akron in some way. All of them told me that if I was planning to pursue a Ph.D. in polymers, it should be from CPSPE. And here I am, four years later, grateful to the people who recommended UA to me."
Akshata Kulkarni, Ph.D. candidate in Polymer Engineering
"The University of Akron is renowned for its Polymer Program and well-acclaimed research. On reaching out to the then-current students at UA, I realized that the program structure, university environment and the expertise of well-established faculty, would help me in achieving my goal to become a successful Polymer Engineer."
Suresh Narute, Ph.D. candidate in Polymer Engineering
"The College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering at The University of Akron is one of the most well renowned colleges for pursuing graduate studies in the field of polymers. I wanted to pursue my Ph.D. in this field after my undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering and Akron was the place to be."
