The Akron Urban League (AUL) is holding its annual meeting and scholarship luncheon on Tuesday, April 26, 2022, commencing at 11:30 a.m. at the Hilton Akron/Fairlawn hotel.   The program will be segmented into two parts: awarding scholarships to local graduating high school seniors and a 2021 economic and programmatic retrospective.

During the scholarship portion of the event, the AUL will award 26 scholarships to selected Summit County high school seniors to further their education. Specifically, five students will receive full-tuition scholarships from The University of Akron, Kent State University, and Stark State College. All Summit County high school 2022 graduating seniors could apply for a scholarship. Finalists were selected based on an essay, their academic record, leadership skills, community service activities, and financial need.

The annual meeting portion will contain a 2021 annual review, including a program presentation and unaudited consolidated financial statements. In May 2022, the annual report data will be available on the organizations’ website,  The AUL will also provide a hard copy of its 2021 annual report to interested parties free of charge, on request through their website at     

“By awarding these Summit County seniors with a scholarship from our program, we are enabling them to concentrate on education. We hope that this financial assistance will allow recipients to be one step closer to achieving their goal of graduating from college. Additionally, we hope that it will inspire the recipients to one day give back to the community,” says Teresa R. LeGrair, President & CEO, Akron Urban League.
