Athens, Ga. — The Office of Undergraduate Admissions at the University of Georgia has awarded One UGA Scholarships to 73 incoming freshmen for the 2007-2008 academic year.
Because the university recognizes the value of a broadly diverse educational environment for all students, these scholarships are provided to academically outstanding incoming students who will contribute to the diversity of the freshmen class. Diversity at the University of Georgia is defined as students who contribute to the geographic, linguistic, experiential and racial/ethnic diversity of the campus. Preference was given to those who are first in their family to attend college.
This award provides $1,500 per year in addition to the HOPE scholarship to Georgia high school graduates. Out-of-state recipients also receive a full or partial Regents Waiver of the out-of-state fee.
The scholarship is renewable for an additional three years as long as students maintain certain academic standards.
