Institutional Scholarships: Entering Freshman Scholarships

Entering FreshmEn scholarships are highly competitive and are awarded to qualified students on an annual basis. Most scholarships available to entering freshmen are offered to students who adhere to the Admissions Early Action application process and are selected to participate in the annual President’s Scholarship Competition. The competition for Fall 2011 Freshmen was held on December 3, 2010. Most scholarships do not require an application as the admission portfolio is utilized; however, several opportunities do exist for students that require a separate application which should be downloaded at

Generally, students should meet all the following criteria to be competitive for these scholarships:

  • Be admitted to Georgia College
  • Score 1250 or better on the SAT or 29 on the ACT
  • Graduate from high school with a 3.5 Grade Point Average based on a 4.0 scale
  • Possess strong academic record
  • Students must be enrolled full-time during both Fall and Spring semesters in order to receive their scholarships.

Continuing students will be considered for scholarships administered by GC by completing the GC Scholarship Application located on the PAWS website. Students should access their PAWS account at and select "GC Scholarship Application" from the Financial Aid menu. The application will be available from mid-December 2012 until February 1, 2013.
