The Goizueta Foundation Graduate Scholars Fund Assistantship

The Goizueta Foundation, founded by Roberto C. Goizueta (former Chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company), established The Goizueta Foundation Graduate Scholars Fund to enhance the education and skills of graduate students committed to improving Latino education. Our center’s Graduate Scholars are expected to learn and contribute to the educational improvement of underrepresented groups in the United States after they complete graduate school.  The Center for Latino Achievement and Success in Education (CLASE), housed in the College of Education at UGA, trains and supervises campus-wide graduate assistantships awarded to outstanding graduate students.

This assistantship consists of a total stipend of $12,000, paid over ten months. In addition, students awarded these assistantships are eligible for a reduced tuition rate, paying only $25 per semester plus student fees. Students spend 13 hours per week starting in August 2012, working with the UGA Center for Latino Achievement and Success in Education. Assistantships are awarded for one year, and may be renewed for up to two additional years based on excellent performance and satisfactory progress towards degree.
