UGA Foundation Incentive Scholarships:
UGA Cortona
Please note that the UGA International Centers award multiple scholarships, at varied amounts for our study abroad programs.
Feel free to contact us with any questions.
We look forward to reviewing your application!

1) An applicant must be a non-transient, degree-seeking major at the University of Georgia and completed at least one semester as an undergraduate or graduate student at UGA prior to taking part in a study abroad program.

2) An applicant must be in good standing at the time of submission of this application as well as during any semester s/he is to receive scholarship funds. Preference will be given to applicants with a 2.5 cumulative grade point average or higher.

3) An applicant must be enrolled for at least 10 credit hours during the semester of application, and an applicant is expected to take an appropriate full-course load (3 hours for a Fall/Spring break; 6-9 hours for summer; 12-15 hours for fall and spring) during the study abroad experience.

Scholarships are based on both need and merit; therefore:

4) Have a COMPLETED PROGRAM APPLICATION for an UGA Cortona study abroad program in the StudyAway Portal.

5) An applicant must complete the ONLINE SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION in the StudyAway Portal ( to be considered for the award. The application shall include the following information:
  • a) A ONE-PAGE ESSAY that outlines your educational, personal, and professional goals and explains, in turn, how these connect to your plans for study abroad.
  • b) An applicant is highly encouraged to file for a Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA form – that is, a FAFSA based on taxes filed in January of the previous year. Once the FAFSA has assessed your financial need, that summary is sent to the UGA Office of Student Financial Aid, where it becomes a part of your records in ATHENA, or your Awards Overview. 
  • c) To qualify for scholarship consideration, applicants must upload an ATHENA "Award Overview" for the current academic year.

I M P O R T A N T  M E S S A G E:
If you have not yet filed a FAFSA for this current academic year, we urge you to file for this assessment well before the scholarship deadline.


No matter whether you are applying for one or for a number of different scholarships, we need ONLY ONE SET of support documents (items 4 and 5a-c above). In other words, along with your application, provide only:
  • 1 PDF upload of your current academic year Award Overview from ATHENA
Follow these instructions:
  • Log in to ATHENA and select "Financial Aid."
  • Select "Award."
  • Select "Award for Aid Year."
  • Select the second tab, "Award Overview."
  • Save the full "Award Overview" page as a PDF file.
  • Upload this file to your program application.​
  • 1 Essay
  • Have a completed program application for a study abroad program in the StudyAway Portal
