Darwin T. Turner Scholars Program

The Darwin T. Turner Scholars Program is one of the oldest ethnic scholarship programs in America. It was named after Dr. Darwin T. Turner, the youngest person ever to graduate from UC; having done so at the age of 16.

The program provides full-tuition scholarships and stipends to academically talented students of color. Aside from the financial support, Turner also has a program component to ensure the retention, graduation, and placement of students.  Through a close-knit team of staff, alumni, and corporate partners, Turner provides a series of activities and workshops to enhance students’ personal, social and professional development.
Students must submit a formal application to the program and receive an acceptance notice from UC to be considered for admission.  In addition, they must also be residents of the State of Ohio.  While in the program, students must maintain high academic standards, participate in designated activities, and conduct 30 hours of community service annually.

Since 1976, approximately 700 students have joined the ranks as Turner alumni – some of the nations’ most outstanding citizens and brightest professionals.
