The Georgia Military Scholarship
North Georgia College & State University/Georgia Army National Guard Military Scholarships are competitively available to Georgia high school seniors who have a cumulative 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale; receive "regular admission" to North Georgia; are residents of Georgia; and are physically and medically fit to enlist in the Georgia Army National Guard. These scholarships cover all costs for room, board, tuition, books, fees, and uniforms. Scholarship winners serve in a pay status in the Georgia Army National Guard while at North Georgia, and upon graduation accept a commission and serve not less than four additional years in the Georgia Army Guard or the active Army with concurrence of the state adjutant general.
Students should contact a local member of the Georgia General Assembly early in the high school senior year for an application and nomination. Completed applications will be received by the Cadet Recruitment Center for submission to the Scholarship Selection Committee, which will select three qualified scholarship winners and first and second alternates from each of Georgia's 13 congressional districts. Application deadline is 15 March. Notification of winners is end of April. If a qualified applicant is not nominated from a district, a nominee may be selected from another district. Vacated scholarships will be filled for a remaining one, two, or three years. Students who desire to earn a vacated scholarship should contact the Guard liaison officer in the Military Department, 706-864-1662.
