CPS Strong

Our city is only as strong as our public schools. And our university is only as strong as its city. That’s why we’ve made a commitment to Cincinnati Public Schools, creating opportunities for CPS students that support college readiness, access and success:


Summer programs for high school sophomores and juniors, specific to academic disciplines they want to explore in college.



Flexible admission requirements and financial aid assistance, including scholarships such as the Cincinnati Pride Grant and the Marian Spencer Scholarship.



Success coaches for CPS students who enroll at UC, helping them stay on track and become career-ready.

University of Cincinnati leadership provided an inspiring look at what is possible for a group of Cincinnati Public High School students at the 1819 Innovation Hub, the nerve center of the Cincinnati Innovation District® (CID).  As part of the “My Brother’s Keeper” (MBK) leadership series in Ohio, more than 22 Cincinnati area high school students enjoyed a fun-filled day engaging with leaders at UC’s 1819 Innovation Hub, learning about career opportunities through the CID and how to achieve a college degree in IT or cyber security through UC’s Early IT program.
