If you are interested in participating in an internship, study abroad program, or other activity that falls outside of these lists, it is your responsibility to speak with an academic advisor or Experiential Learning Certification Officer about which UGA courses could be taken for credit under the supervision of a UGA faculty member in conjunction with your selected activity.

Please verify that your course or non-credit activity is approved for UGA Experiential Learning before completing an application.

Please note:
  • Applicants may only apply for one Experiential Learning Scholarship per application period.
  • Anyone who has previously received an Experiential Learning Scholarship may not re-apply.
  • A recommendation letter is required and should be written by UGA faculty or staff.  All recommendation letters must be submitted by the application deadline.
