Each year, the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) awards scholarships to students enrolled in our majors. CAES awards over $290,000 to undergraduate students in scholarships each year and 70 percent of undergraduate students who apply for CAES scholarships receive an award. There are additional scholarship opportunities through CAES Departments and the Griffin and Tifton extended campuses.
View a list of available CAES scholarships below. The application processes and deadlines vary depending on the scholarship.
Prospective Students Scholarship Program
The College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) has scholarship funds for prospective students interested in majoring within our College such as the CAES Alumni Associations Freshman Scholarships and the CAES Alumni Association Transfer Scholarships. This Prospective Students program is for incoming first-year and transfer students only. Students already attending UGA are not eligible for the program and are encouraged to instead apply for "College-wide Scholarships" and all other appropriate scholarship programs listed below. Application for the Prospective Students Scholarships program will be accepted through Friday, 19 March 2021.
CAES is committed to providing financial support to students enrolled in the college's majors. Apply online to be considered for all of these CAES general scholarships. Please note that incoming freshmen and transfer students should apply to the Prospective Students Scholarship Program listed above rather than for this College-wide Scholarships program.
Broder-Ackermann Global Citizen Award
The Broder-Ackermann Global Citizen Award recognizes an undergraduate student in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences who has embraced global citizenship in their own community or globally through participation, promotion and/or leadership of international initiatives. Global citizenship does not necessarily mean that you have traveled extensively, but rather that you take an active interest and involvement in cultures different from your own.
Ratcliffe Scholars Program
The Ratcliffe Scholars Program rewards forward-thinking CAES undergraduate students with the opportunity to engage in immersive, hands-on learning experiences outside the confines of a traditional class setting. Eligible experiences may include internships, study abroad programs, research opportunities and any other experiential learning activities deemed appropriate by the selection committee. Ratcliffe Scholars receive a $5,000 scholarship and participate in enrichment activities as cohort throughout the year.
International Travel Scholarship
International travel scholarships are available to support CAES student travel to study abroad programs and international internship programs. Students may apply in one of two application cycles, according to their departure date. Students departing on an international program during the current fall semester or spring semester of the following year should apply between August 1 - November 1. Students departing during the Maymester or summer semester should apply between December 1 - March 1. Applications received by the deadline date will be given full consideration.
