At Least 49 Admitted Under University of Toledo Guarantee

University of Toledo Letter"We believe in you," Michele Evans-Gardell, Canton City Schools Superintendent declared, "and so does University of Toledo."

Last week, representatives from the University of Toledo visited McKinley and Timken juniors and seniors to tell them more about the U-T Guarantee, a program for Pell Grant eligible students graduating with at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average. Forty-nine qualified seniors have been accepted to date, and when their applications and federal financial aid applications are processed, they will be accepted to their college of interest and receive University of Toledo financial aid to fill any gap remaining in the $8,000 cost of tuition and general fees.

"We began the Guarantee in September with six Ohio urban districts," Cathy Kwapich, Admissions Operations Director explained. "In January we expanded to the Urban 21, including Canton."

Toledo is committed to the persistence and success of "Guarantee" students. The scholarship is renewable provided the students maintain a 3.0 GPA. If a student's financial circumstances change so that they are no longer Pell eligible but they still need financial aid Toledo will continue to provide tuition.

"We are proud of you, you've worked hard and you're taking advantage of a great opportunity," said Jeff Talbert, McKinley Principal, "We're also proud of your families who've supported you."
