The University of West Georgia Office of Admissions will be hosting a Scholarship Day on the President’s Day holiday (Monday, February 18th, 2013) this year to invite eligible students to compete for scholarship awards to help them make their mark at UWG.
At the President’s Day Scholarship Program, you, along with other eligible students, will have the opportunity to become one of the first recipients of a new scholarship fund, the Foundation Scholarships, which include more than $50,000 in academic scholarships. Further, qualifying students with superior grades and test scores may qualify for our highly competitive Presidential Scholarships. In addition, students will compete for performing arts scholarships in music, theatre and art.
Throughout the day, faculty, staff and students will be available to answer any questions prospective students may have about the university. Sessions are planned to provide both students and parents with important information about the University of West Georgia, including lunch with current students and faculty, campus tours, and financial aid sessions (including FAFSA workshops).
If you are interested in attending the President’s Day Scholarship Program, you can register online through your MyUWG Portal (registration is only available for new students who have been accepted for the Fall Semester 2013). If you plan to attend this event, please register by February 11, 2013. Please note that only qualified applicants will be invited to attend the event for this date. For a listing of the academic qualifications, please visit the scholarships page and read the description for the Foundation Scholarship eligible requirements. Once completing this form, your request to be included in the Scholarship Day will be reviewed and you will review a formal invitation if you are selected to attend the Scholarship day. Please keep in mind that the Scholarship Day will include a face-to-face interview and all eligible applicants must be admitted to the University of West Georgia through the Admissions Office by February 1st, 2013.
We hope that you will take part in this wonderful opportunity.
