Turner Scholars

The Darwin T. Turner Scholars Program (formerly known as the Minority Scholars Program) is offered by the Office of Ethnic Programs & Services and honors an African American student who, at the age of 16, was the youngest person ever to graduate from the University of Cincinnati. The program promotes academic excellence, fosters diversity, and provides leadership opportunities to incoming students. In addition to receiving full-tuition funding, Darwin T. Turner Scholars are expected to participate in programs and activities designed to improve their intellectual, personal and professional development. 

If you have questions, please contact us via email or call 513-556-6008.

Good luck as we consider and select the Darwin T. Turner Scholars for 2016-17!
