Scholarship Gala
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Sustaining and enhancing our desired position as the institution of choice in West Georgia and the region requires the university to remain competitive in recruiting future generations of student scholars. The brightest young minds, destined to become the next generation of doctors, lawyers, statesmen, scientists and teachers, are sought by universities around the world. Additional enhancements to our existing financial aid program will enable the university to continue to attract and support highly qualified students from its traditional and nontraditional audiences – many of whom are first generation attendees from families of modest means, as well as talented students who may otherwise lack the financial ability to pursue a college education. With the rising costs of college tuition and fees, many students work 20, and even 40 hours per week to afford college expenses. It is evident from the student profile that private funding for need-based scholarships is a priority at UWG. Need-based scholarships will assist in eliminating financial barriers to a college education and help ensure that great student potential is not lost as a result of not being able to afford to attend college.
