President's Scholarship Program
The President's Scholarship Program is Georgia Tech's premier merit-based scholarship. Recipients are selected from the top applicants for admission to Georgia Tech based on demonstrated excellence in scholarship, leadership, progress, and service as described on the President's Scholarship Program web page. From the applicant pool, students selected as semi-finalists submit a one-page resume before being interviewed. The top semi-finalists are be named finalists and invited, with their parents, to campus for additional interviews and an information weekend in late spring.
Current Georgia Tech students and transfer students are not eligible for the four-year award.
Each year, 40-50 incoming freshmen receive the President's Scholarship, which is renewable for up to four academic years or eight semesters, contingent upon honors-level performance and continued leadership development as evidenced by involvement in program, campus, and community activities. Awards are worth up to a full ride (known as the Stamps Leadership Scholarship), including tuition, room and board, books, fees, and personal expenses. See the website below for more information on stipends.
To ensure consideration, a student must apply as an incoming freshman, and submit the Georgia Tech Application for Freshman Admission, along with the application fee by October 15th.
