The University of Georgia scholarship program 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.

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.

International and F-1 visa applicants can qualify for many of these merit-based scholarships.
