University of Georgia Presidential Leadership Scholarship
- Scholarship Description
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.
The University of Georgia Presidential Leadership Scholarship is offered to students who have a record of strong academic achievement and a history of accomplishment and leadership in co-curricular activities. This is a renewable award, which can be combined with the Zell Miller/HOPE scholarship for Georgia residents and for students who are non-resident, a Presidential Waiver of the out-of-state fees will be included. Students must maintain full-time enrollment and a 3.0 GPA. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
