ECOM sponsors its own college scholarship award each year. Residents and students in the ECOM 14-county area  are eligible to apply. For further details about the Karl J. Roden Memorial Scholarship see Mensa Scholarships on the Main Menu.

The scholarship is funded via donations to the Karl J. Roden Scholarship Fund at the Akron Community Foundation, year-round fund raising projects, and ECOM's Fall scholarship auction. It's great fun and reputed to be one of the best in the country.
