Representatives from The University of Toledo will talk to Akron Public Schools students on Friday about its unique scholarship program that covers 100 percent of tuition for four years for qualified students.
The presentation begins at 9:15 a.m. at the former Central Hower High School, at 123 S. Forge St.
The Blue and Gold Scholar Award is a four-year, renewable scholarship that covers the total cost of tuition and general fees, after state and federal aid and other UT scholarship monies are applied, according to the University of Toledo.
It is open to seniors attending a high school in the the state of Ohio or Monroe County, Michigan.
To qualify, students must have a cumulative B average, fill out a federal financial aid form, show Pell Grant eligibility, and apply to the University of Toledo.
The scholarship pays whatever tuition isn't covered by federal or state aid.
