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 Baldwin Scholarship is offered to students who demonstrate outstanding achievement in academics and reflecting other criteria contained in the philosophy statement of admissions. This award includes an annual renewable $2,000 stipend for Georgia residents, and typically 30-35 awards are offered. Students must maintain full-time enrollment and a 3.0 GPA.
