MGA Foundation Scholarships

The Middle Georgia State University Foundation is accepting scholarship applications for the Fall 2022-Spring 2023 semesters. The deadline for the first round of awards is midnight on Tuesday, March 1. If you’ve submitted an application in the past and would like to be considered for future scholarship awards, you must submit a new application. Scholarships are competitive and everyone who applies does not receive a scholarship award. Please review the following important information before you begin your application.

Who may apply? Students who have been admitted to MGA are eligible to apply for scholarships, including dual-enrolled students and graduate students. Students must be in good academic and conduct standing to receive scholarships.

What if my scholarship from last year is renewable? Even if you receive a renewable scholarship, you must reapply each year so that our office can confirm that you still meet the award criteria.

What is the deadline? The portal will accept applications until midnight on Tuesday, March 1, 2022. There are no exceptions for late submissions.

What happens next? Applications will be reviewed in March and the first round of scholarship awards will be made in April and May. You will be notified of an award through your email address and you must accept the award online in order to receive the funding. 

What if I don’t receive a scholarship? If you don’t receive an award in the first round, your application will remain on file for consideration if additional scholarship funding becomes available later in the year. You may also apply to external scholarships which are listed on the MGA website here.

Where do I apply? The online General Application may be found here: This single application will place you in the pool for all scholarships for which you are eligible.  If you are new to the application process, you will need to first create an account. Click on the ‘Sign Up’ button on the top right-hand side of the page and create your account using your email address and a password that you create (it is not your email password).  After you create the account, you will receive a confirmation email to confirm your identity. Please make sure to check your spam folder for this email. Once you have confirmed your account, you can begin the scholarship application process. 

How can I submit a great application? The application includes a number of short answer questions and one comprehensive essay question.  The best way to make your application stand out is to submit an excellent essay, responding to each aspect of the essay prompt.  Essays are evaluated on grammar, a complete response and the quality of the overall essay.  Because the application also uses information from SWORDS, it’s important that you update and maintain your personal information in SWORDS. Your application will automatically be filtered against all available scholarships for which you qualify.  You don’t need to submit individual applications for specific scholarships.
