UWG Scholarship Application
Please visit University of West Georgia's Scholarship Search website to search for and apply for scholarships through UWG. In order to apply for scholarships at the University of West Georgia, you need to have been admitted through the Admissions Office as an incoming freshmen/transfer student OR you will need to already be an enrolled student to apply for scholarships as a current student. Admitted or currently enrolled graduate level students can also complete this application. If you are not yet admitted, or enrolled, you are welcome to search scholarship opportunities through this site for information purposes. Some of our scholarships are considered "need-based" and you will need to complete a current Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine your eligibility for these scholarships.
Each department keeps a list of the scholarships they offer, such as the Housing Ambassador Scholarship. To learn more about Departmental Scholarships, you will need to visit the department's website.
