Scholarships for Returning Students

Each year, students currently enrolled at Georgia College who plan to return the following academic year have the opportunity to apply for Scholarships for Returning Students. Note that these scholarships are not available to incoming freshmen or transfer students. The scholarship application is typically available late Fall Semester for the upcoming academic year with most deadlines being the first Friday of February. The Financial Aid Office notifies all enrolled students via their institutional email account when the application is available.

General criteria for most of the Scholarships for Returning Studentsare as follows:

  • Full-time enrollment for Fall and Spring semesters (12 hours for undergraduate)
  • Completion of 24 hours at Georgia College by the end of Spring Semester (students may apply before completion of these hours)
  • Minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA; however, these scholarships are competitive.

Students will be matched to scholarships based on their application answers. Please note that actual offerings for the upcoming academic year may change as funding is determined on a yearly basis.

Students will be notified of scholarship offers via their institutional email account and the offering will be posted on their Unify (PAWS) account.  Students may be expected to sign into Unify and accept the scholarship as well as write a thank you letter to the donor.  Please note that actual offerings for the upcoming academic year may change as funding is determined on a yearly basis.
