A Night in Paris - Parisian Masquerade Ball

Opportunity and education go hand in hand, but financial access to a college education impedes many UWG students. Our case for support: nearly 50% of UWG students qualify for Pell Grants; over 65% qualify for Federal Financial Aid or subsidized loans; 40% of students are the first in their family to graduate from college.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the Presidential Scholarship Gala?

    Opportunity and education go hand in hand, but financial access to a college education impedes many UWG students. Families of limited means often cannot provide financial support, and students working as many as 40 hours per week leaves little time for study. Our case for support:

    • Nearly 50% of UWG students qualify for Pell Grants
    • 65% qualify for Federal Financial Aid or subsidized loans
    • 40% of UWG students are the first in their family to graduate from college.

    The typical "need-based gap" of our students averages nearly $1,000 per term. Need-based scholarships and gap funding help alleviate financial pressures so students can focus on building their futures. Please join us in knocking down financial barriers to opportunity. Your support and generosity are the difference between student success and lost potential.
