Incoming First-year Honors students are eligible to receive West Georgia's most prestigious awards, Presidential Scholarships.

Every year we award a small number of exceptional incoming Honors College students with a Presidential Scholarship. These awards are for $4,500 per year, and are renewable for up to 3 additional years as long as the student maintains Honors College eligibility.

In order to be considered for this award, you must be eligible for the Honors College.

The Presidential Scholarship Committee reviews the Admissions Scores of all Honors College eligible UWG incoming first year students who have been accepted to the University of West Georgia before February 1. Students with exceptional qualifications will be contacted and interviews will be arranged.

Decisions are typically made around March 1st each year.

The review process for Presidential Scholarships is highly competitive. Students with high GPA's and SAT/ACT scores are encouraged to apply early to the University of West Georgia  (Office of Admissions) in order to be eligible to receive these awards.
