UGAF Funding

About

The University of Georgia Foundation provides more than $40 million in annual support to the University. The funding supports a variety of scholarships, faculty, and other programs that enhance academic opportunities and the quality of education at the University of Georgia.

Included in this support is:
  • Funding from endowments for a wide range of scholarships including the premier Foundation Fellowship and Ramsey Honors Scholarship programs.
    • Funding from unrestricted gifts for Charter Scholarships, Georgia Incentive, Need Based Scholarships, UGA Diversity Scholarships, Study Abroad Scholarships and Graduate Fellowships
  • Funding from endowments to support chairs and professorships at the university, graduate fellowships, study-abroad scholarships and faculty research.
  • Funding from unrestricted gifts for special recruiting events for high-achieving high school students and their families both on campus and in the students' home communities.
  • Funding from unrestricted gifts for academic programs such as Center for Undergraduate Research (CURO), Washington Semester Program, and Teaching Fellows

A wide range of scholarships are available to students attending the University of Georgia, falling into broad categories based on merit, financial need or a combination of both merit and need.  As a key component of its mission to support and enhance the university’s academic mission, the University of Georgia Foundation accepts donor gifts and provides fiduciary care for many of the scholarships offered each year to thousands of undergraduate and graduate students.

The University of Georgia Foundation provides the scholarship funding to the UGA Office of Admissions and the Office of Student Financial Aid for awarding to deserving students.
