Scholarship Day

The University of West Georgia Office of Admissions will be hosting a Scholarship Day on the President’s Day holiday (Monday, February 16th, 2015) 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 compete for a variety of scholarship opportunities, including Academic Scholarships, Emerging Leader Awards, or Housing Ambassador 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, which include lunch with current faculty and senior leadership on campus, campus tours, and an academic and department browsing fair.

If you are interested in attending the President’s Day Scholarship Program, you can register online (registration is only available for new students who have been accepted for the Fall Semester 2015). If you plan to attend this event, please register by February 12th, 2015. Please keep in mind that the Scholarship Day will include a face-to-face 30 minute general interview and all eligible applicants must have been admitted to the University of West Georgia through the Admissions Office by February 1st, 2015. Once you complete the online registration, you will be sent specific instructions for directions to campus, your interview time, and what to prepare for in regards to your interview.
