University of Akron College of Business Administration

THE JASON J. SPINDLER MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP In establishing this scholarship, the donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, desires to financially assist one hardworking graduate student in the Masters of Business Administration program at the University of Akron College of Business Administration. The candidate should possess, as Jason did, an interest in improving the lives of people and communities in underdeveloped economies around the world.

Candidate Requirements

Like, Jason, the donor believes strongly in the power of education and its ability to impact an individual's future. To be eligible for this scholarship, University of Akron students must be enrolled in the Master's of Business Administration Program in the College of Business Administration. The scholarship is open to new or current graduate students, full or part time, with a GPA of 3.0 or higher for tuition and fees.

Along with an application, applicants must submit an essay (a two page maximum) describing how they exemplify Jason's ideals to help others. First consideration will be given to a student who, like Jason, desires a life of service to others. This can be displayed by being involved in organizations or programs that directly help others in need, or having a desire to create or working at a company that provides job opportunities to underserved people in communities. Also, an applicant with medical background who desires to earn an MBA will be considered.

The College of Business Administration's MBA scholarship committee will select the recipient. In addition to the above criteria, the committee will consider factors such as the student's interest in making the world a better place, financial need and community service.
