About the Georgia Commitment Scholars Program

The Georgia Commitment Scholars Program is a need-based scholarship program for UGA students. The scholarship is renewable for up to four years and comes with a variety of programs and resources to support student success. Even if a Georgia Commitment Scholar’s financial aid eligibility changes, that scholar will always have access to The Georgia Commitment Scholars programs and success resources.

How to Apply

All financial aid applications are automatically reviewed for eligibility for The Georgia Commitment Scholars Program. To calculate financial aid, UGA uses the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which asks for information about your family finances. The FAFSA is available at The Office of Student Financial Aid will email students who are eligible to become a Georgia Commitment Scholar and may ask for additional documents to verify their aid eligibility.

Beyond a Scholarship

The Georgia Commitment goes well beyond financial aid by surrounding students with a wealth of resources in partnership with academic advising and career services. These resources include course tutoring, academic coaching, innovative UNIV courses designed to assist Georgia Commitment Scholars with the transition from high school into higher education, special events, unique success workshops, and networking opportunities to help them make the most of their time at UGA.

Donating to the Georgia Commitment Scholarship

Establishing an endowed undergraduate need-based scholarship is one way to change lives. Scholarships remove barriers and create for our students and their families pathways to futures that would otherwise be unreachable.

The UGA Foundation will match dollar for dollar any gift in the amount of $50,000, $75,000 or $100,000 to establish an endowed undergraduate need-based scholarship.
