The Marian Spencer Scholarship Program
It’s alive in our best and brightest. Marian's tenacity echoes and reverberates within the hearts of a new generation of torch-bearers, ready and willing to continue the fight. And for those who have what it takes, we have your launchpad.
University of Cincinnati is proud to partner with Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS) to offer the Marian Spencer Scholarship Program, exclusively granting CPS students the opportunity to pursue their dreams of higher education without any barriers. Selected scholars will carry on the legacy of Marian Spencer, a beloved UC alumna who fought fearlessly for civil rights and racial justice.
The Spencer Scholarship builds a runway for underrepresented students at UC who will have an incredible opportunity to launch their academic and professional careers from our campus.
