Help us fund the Susan B. Kosich Endowed Scholarship for Marketing Communications

Once we raise $25,000, this will become an endowed scholarship through the Akron Community Foundation.

Purpose of the scholarship:

• Provide scholarships to sophomore, junior and senior college students at an accredited Northeast Ohio college or university pursuing a bachelor's degree in a communications-related field, including advertising, marketing, visual communication design, digital media, photography, interactive marketing, copywriting, public relations, media planning and journalism. 

• Give more scholarships that can possibly be renewed each year for students who meet the criteria.

• Lasting tribute to Susan B. Kosich. She was a long-term member and supporter of AAF-Akron. She worked for many years as a sales person extraordinaire at Oliver Printing & Packaging Co. She was a tennis fanatic and will be remembered for her tremendous devotion to her sons, for her humor and laughter which filled a room, her advocacy for women’s causes and social justice, and her love of animals.
