As part of our Public Service and Outreach mission, we continue to offer scholarships to students based on financial need. In 2017, we had 71 students attend on scholarships totaling more than $29,000. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to a general fund, go to the Commit to Georgia web site. If you are able to help others attend via a donation, your support is greatly appreciated.

Our Summer Academy at UGA programs are designed to let you live out your dreams. You can immerse yourself in any world you choose, from photography to video game design to aviation to comic book art. You’ll work with experts in the field to get practical, hands-on experience, and receive helpful advice on how to get where you want to go. And you’ll do it all while having a really great time!
