Institutional Scholarships

The University of North Georgia and its supporters proudly provide many UNG students with foundation scholarships. You may apply for this funding by submitting an application to one or many of the UNG resources listed below that meet your circumstances.

UNG Student Scholarships

Students can now complete one form to be considered for all UNG Foundation Scholarships for which they qualify. A UNG login is required. If you have not yet been accepted to UNG, you cannot apply for these scholarships.

Fall 2019 - Summer 2020 UNG Scholarships

  • Opens: October 5, 2018
  • Deadline: February 14, 2019
  • Decisions: Due to variations in policies and procedures, the timing of notifications may vary. Only students selected to receive a scholarship will receive a notification – students will not be notified if they are not selected for a scholarship. 

New Student Scholarships

With your application to UNG, you are automatically considered for the following scholarships given by the Office of Undergraduate Admission:

Academic and Leadership Scholarships

Academic and Leadership Scholarships are automatically awarded to newly admitted students based on prior academic performance, participation in extracurricular activities and leadership positions or awards. Note that some scholarships are awarded based on where students live, what high school they attended, financial need, or other criteria established by scholarship donors. Students must be admitted prior to March 1 to be considered.

Presidential Tuition Waivers

Presidential Tuition Waivers (PTW) are competitively awarded to out-of-state and international students based on academic performance and/or test scores. All admitted out-of-state and international students who are legally present in the US will be considered (no separate application is required) and the qualifications of recipients will depend on the competitiveness of the pool.

Recipients may be awarded a half PTW, which allows students to pay tuition at the in-state tuition rate plus half the out-of-state rate, or a full PTW, which allows recipients to pay tuition at the in-state rate, for up to nine semesters if renewal criteria are met.

This results in a savings of $25,000 to $50,000 over four years.

Honors Program Presidential Scholars

The Choate Family Presidential Scholarship and the William P. Roberts Presidential Scholarship are awarded competitively to the most academically qualified incoming freshmen on the Dahlonega camps. Scholars receive up to $1,000 per year, renewable for up to four years of study, depending on degree track. The Russell Scholarship is available to a student on the Gainesville or Oconee campus only.
