Last year, UGA awarded more than $6 million in scholarships and awards from University funds to undergraduate students. Most academic (merit-based) scholarships for first-year students are awarded during the admissions process. This process is usually finalized by early April for all admitted first-year students. Approximately 14% of enrolled first-year students received an academic scholarship from UGA. All scholarships awarded by the Undergraduate Admissions office are renewable for eight semesters of full-time enrollment, or the completion of a bachelor’s degree.
For the University of Georgia Classic Scholarship, out-of-state residents may be offered annual, fully-renewable scholarships, providing a waiver of tuition and fees equal to half the differential between in-state and out-of-state costs. This opportunity currently provides a minimum value to each student of a certain amount per year. Awards will be made to non-Georgia residents presenting strong academic record. Students must maintain full-time enrollment and a 3.0 GPA.
