Scholarships at UGA
Last year, UGA awarded more than $7 million in scholarships and awards from University Foundation funds to undergraduate students. Most academic (merit-based) scholarships for first-year students are awarded during the Admissions process.
Approximately 13% of the new first year students enrolling received an academic scholarship from UGA. First-year students must submit their admissions application to UGA by December 15 to receive priority consideration for scholarships.
Additionally, scholarships available through individual academic departments are typically awarded to upperclassmen, but prospective students should consult the websites of their intended department for more information. Some scholarships for first-year students require an additional application. Please consult the following list for more information as well as this supplemental list of scholarships.
