The University of Georgia Foundation Fellowship is one of the most prestigious undergraduate scholarship programs in the United States. The Fellowship was established in 1972 by trustees of the University of Georgia Foundation to enhance the educational experiences of academically outstanding undergraduate students. The Foundation Fellowship provides an annual stipend of approximately $10,780 for in-state students (in addition to the HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship) and $17,680 for out-of-state students (plus an out-of-state tuition waiver). The Fellowship also provides numerous opportunities for national and international travel-study, faculty-directed academic research, and academic conference participation.
Additional benefits of the Fellowship include extensive academic enrichment opportunities such as seminars with distinguished University of Georgia professors and visiting scholars, advising and mentoring from senior faculty fellows, and membership to UGA's nationally-recognized Honors Program.
All finalists who participate in the Interview Weekend will be named Bernard Ramsey Honors Scholars. The Ramsey Honors Scholarship provides a $5,450 stipend for in-state students (in addition to the HOPE Scholarship) and an $8,840 stipend (plus an out-of-state tuition waiver) for out-of-state students. The scholarship also includes a $3,000 travel-study grant. Following the Interview Weekend, approximately 25 of the Ramsey Scholars will be named University of Georgia Foundation Fellows. We look forward to working with you.
