ABOUT THE COUSINS SCHOLARS PROGRAM

The Cousins Scholars Program will welcome its inaugural cohort of six service-minded students in the fall of 2019. The program provides a robust collegiate experience for scholars with participation in the Freshman College Summer Experience, experiential learning grants to support learning outside the classroom, and a unique cohort-based approach to student success from start to finish. The scholarship is renewable for up to four years and comes with a variety of programs and resources to support student success. The program was estabished through a generous contribution to the Commit to Georgia campaign. Read more here.

 

SELECTION PROCESS

All students who submit their financial aid application, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid  (FAFSA via UGA Office of Student Financial Aid), are automatically reviewed for eligibility for the Correll Scholars Program. The Office of Student Financial Aid will email students who are eligible to become a Correll Scholar and may request additional documents to verify their aid eligibility.

 

SUPPORT ON THE PATH TO SUCCESS

The summer before beginning their journey at UGA, incoming Scholars receive an invitation to attend Freshman College Summer Experience (FCSE). FCSE program fee, housing, and meal plan are paid in full for Cousins Scholars, so we strongly encourage our incoming Scholars to take advantage of this unique, academic residential program. Each fall, we welcome new Scholars to campus through a Scholars Success Day and invite them to enroll in an innovative UNIV course to assist with the transition into higher education. Beyond a scholarship, the Cousins Scholars Program surrounds students with major-specific resources, networking opportunities, and intentional campus partnerships across units like academic advising, experiential learning, study abroad, and career services. Program activities culminate in a Scholars reception each spring, and as students progress in the program, they are invited to mentor next year’s incoming program participants.
