Most Outstanding Student

Starting in Summer 2016, we will be offering a $2,500 UNG scholarship to our Most Outstanding Student award winner. Along with the scholarship, the Summer Honors Most Outstanding Student will earn automatic enrollment in the University of North Georgia (UNG) Honors Program upon admission to UNG. Honors students enjoy benefits including priority registration for classes, small class sizes (12 - 18 students) and study abroad scholarship opportunities. A full list of Honors Program benefits is available at the UNG Honors Program webpage. The scholarship will support $1,250 per year for the first two years the student spends at UNG provided a GPA of at least 3.2 is maintained.
