Student success is our number one priority at UWG, yet for many students, finding a way to pay for college can become a significant barrier in earing their degree. That's why we give. 

We give to allow these students the opportunity to go to college, to experience all we have to offer and to reach their potential. A student's four years at the University of West Georgia encapsulate one of the most transformative times in their life, and that knowledge pushes us to do all we can for them. 

(The student stories below are examples of how scholarships and internal funds have supported our students in their journey at the University of West Georgia.)

Grant Hacherl

"There is no doubt that Grant Hacherl, senior in psychology, has done his part at the University of West Georgia. He presented research at the National Collegiate Honors Council Conference and the Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference. He was awarded with the Outstanding Honors College Junior Award at Honors Convocation. But perhaps most importantly, he has pursued his passions for children and helping others and turned it into the start of a vocational journey."

Hannah Baldizon

"From engaging classes to exciting student organizations, the University of West Georgia offers a variety of resources to help students succeed and thrive at the university. Undergraduate student Hannah Beth Baldizon, of Carrollton, is a perfect example of a student who is taking advantage of these opportunities to do just that.

Baldizon, who is studying marketing and management at UWG, is a member of the third cohort in the Southwire Sustainable Business Honors Program (SSBHP). The Southwire- and Richards College of Business-sponsored program allows students to earn both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in their chosen business field, as well as a certificate of sustainability, in just four years. For Baldizon, the program has been one of the most important parts of her experience at UWG."

Adedolapo Adebola-Wilson

"If I were to tell you that a University of West Georgia student recently held a photo exhibition in Atlanta, you might say, 'Oh, impressive! A UWG art student had a show in Atlanta!' But you would be only half right. Yes, it is impressive, but you’re a little off base on the discipline. The student I’m referring to isn’t an art student – he’s a business student double majoring in management and management of information systems."

Bre'ana Singleton

"At first introduction, she’s shy and reserved, but whether she’s in the classroom or on the basketball court, Bre’ana Singleton is handling business. Singleton, a point guard for the University of West Georgia women’s basketball team and mass communications senior, succeeds in her studies by maintaining a 4.0 GPA while continuing her passion of playing basketball."
