The Foundation Fellowship currently provides an annual stipend of $11,372 for Georgia residents (in addition to the HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship) and $18,892 for non-residents (plus an out-of-state tuition waiver). The Bernard Ramsey Honors Scholarship provides $5,686 for Georgia residents (in addition to the HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship) and $9,546 for non-residents (plus and out-of-state tuition waiver). Much more than financial support, program membership provides: Spring break travel-study programs, a May study abroad program at Oxford in England immediately following the first year, travel-study grants closely related to students’ academic and professional goals, which can be combined with study overseas for a full semester or academic year, grants to attend research and academic conferences, seminars and book discussions with UGA and visiting professors, and faculty and peer mentoring. For more information about the amazing opportunities for Foundation Fellows and Bernard Ramsey Honors Scholars, please visit the Honors Program website. To be considered, all applicants must be current high school seniors with a minimum unweighted high school GPA of 3.80 and a minimum combined, super-scored SAT total score of 2100 or ACT composite score of 31.

  David Graves      September 17th, 2010

Happy Friday!  My name is Cindy and I work in the UGA Admissions Office as well.  I manage the Foundation Fellowship and Bernard Ramsey Honors Scholarship application process.  Many thanks to DGraves for allowing me to guest post today. The 2011 Foundation Fellowship and Bernard Ramsey Honors Scholarship application is now available on the admissions web site. This year there are a few changes and things to keep in mind with this application process. 1. Students may only apply online for these scholarships. There will be an opportunity to print a pdf of your application once it is submitted. 2. Please submit your admissions application prior to submitting the scholarship application. Since we use many of the same components for both applications, it makes things easier to match up. 3. The deadline to submit and complete the scholarship application is November 15. Your admissions application must also be completed by this date. 4. Applicants must be current high school seniors with an unweighted high school GPA of at least 3.75 and a minimum combined SAT score of 1400 (Critical Reading and Math only) or ACT score of 31. 5.
