What do I need to do to renew the scholarship?
In order to renew your scholarship, an official transcript must be sent to the Foundation’s office, showing a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or
higher and a minimum of 12 credit hours completed for each semester. Please make sure your grades are final before sending the transcript to us.
Lastly, we expect our scholars to be model citizens in the community; therefore, any illegal act resulting in a conviction, suspension from school due to
violations of school policy, or any other acts deemed unethical or immoral will result in forfeiture of your scholarship.

How will the funds be disbursed?
After receiving your current official transcript and verifying that you have met the requirements, your scholarship installment amount of $7,000 per year
(payable in two equal installments of $3,500 per semester) will be sent directly to the school that we have on record for you. This installment is typically
mailed out in mid-July. Please check your student account to confirm. These funds may be used to pay for the cost of attendance at your school for the
semester in which payment is made, but only to the extent that such costs are not otherwise covered through other grants and/or scholarships, including
institutional scholarships available to the recipient. Any scholarship funds not used to pay for such costs
must be returned to the Foundation at the
conclusion of that semester and are not to be given directly to the student.

Please note that although our scholarship can be used for things associated with the cost of attendance, this can only be done directly through the
student's account at the school, as our scholarship funds must be paid to an IRS approved, non-profit entity. For example; things such as off-campus
housing or groceries cannot be funded with our scholarship. Technically, housing and food is included in a school's cost of attendance, but we, as a
charitable foundation, cannot pay a for-profit entity (like an off-campus landlord) for our scholars' housing, or directly provide grocery money to our

In order for our scholarship to be used towards books and supplies, the purchase of these items must go through your student account. Please check
with your school to verify their process for purchasing books. It should be noted that The University of Akron does not allow students to use our
scholarship towards the purchase of books and supplies.

It should also be noted that if you end up graduating early, scholarship installments cannot be accelerated or "doubled up".

What happens if tuition at the school I plan to attend is less than the amount of the scholarship?
Please contact us so that we can review this with you.

What if I do not maintain the requirements of the scholarship?
The first time you do not meet the requirements, your scholarship installment will still be issued to the school you are attending - but only for one
semester at a time. At the end of the semester, you must still send us your official transcript so that we can verify that you have maintained the
requirements of the scholarship. If you have, we will send the next semester's installment. If you have not met the requirements for a second semester,
you will no longer be eligible to receive scholarship funds
and all remaining installments will be cancelled.

Can the scholarship be used for classes over the summer session?
If you will be attending full time (a minimum of 12 credit hours) during the summer session, a scholarship installment can be used for the summer session.

Are there scholarship or grant funds available for graduate studies?
No, David Scholar funds are only available for undergraduate studies.
