Nationally Competitive Scholarships and Fellowships
In the past several years, over 30 Georgia Southern University students have received recognition from these prestigious programs. Twenty-one students have received U.S. Department of State awards such as the U.S. Student Fulbright Grant, Critical Language Scholarship and Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship. One student received the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship while another received an honorable mention. Three students received the Boren Scholarship, two students received the Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship, one received an award from the Fund for Education Abroad, and one received a scholarship from German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). One student received Honorable Mention from the Udall Scholarship. Several students have also won Phi Kappa Phi Study Abroad Scholarships.
Many fellowships and scholarships require that applicants be nominated by participating institutions. These nominations come through the University Honors Program, though a student need not be in the program to be nominated. Students requiring nomination must adhere to the campus deadlines to be considered. Also, students applying for fellowships and scholarships where no nomination is needed but who request support from the program must also adhere to the deadline. (Some fellowships and scholarships do not require a campus nomination and students may apply directly, if they so choose.) Campus deadlines are designed to help students prepare the best application possible. Please plan ahead and register for our Scholar Development Series, a series of workshops designed to advise students as they prepare applications.
