Over the last
several months the Admissions staff has carefully reviewed all our newly
admitted First Year students to consider them for University of Georgia
academic merit scholarships.  (See the list and our discussion of merit
and need-based aid at our website,
All scholarships available through
Admissions have now been awarded, and we have contacted each of the recipients
via email and mail.
At UGA, academic
merit scholarships have become increasingly competitive.  This is
mainly due to the limited funding we have for these awards and the high number
of extremely capable students who now gain University of Georgia admission. 
Always continue
to search for scholarship opportunities, whether or not you have been awarded a
scholarship from Undergraduate Admissions Office.  Search your academic
major for scholarships online.  Use our web site and the Office of Student
Financial Aid web site to search for external scholarship opportunities. Also,
remember to look for local scholarship opportunities for students in your home
If you have been
selected for any of our Academic Merit awards, congratulations!  Please be
sure to read your offer letter carefully.  Keep it for your records. 
In this letter you will see what requirements you must maintain to renew your
scholarship each succeeding year and, in general, how much the scholarship is
worth in relation to your overall costs.
