At the University System of Georgia (USG), we are in the business of higher education. Georgia is at a critical time when the need for a college-educated workforce continues to increase. Our top priority at the USG is to ensure more Georgians enter the workforce with a college credential, while we also seek to make college more affordable and ourselves more efficient on behalf of our students and communities.­

This is why the University System of Georgia Foundation Board of Trustees has prioritized increasing need-based scholarship aid for USG students. Our goals are to shine the spotlight on the critical correlation between a college education and Georgia’s economic vitality, to educate our citizens about the cause and need for need-based scholarships, and to lead the effort in building a culture of philanthropy in the world of higher education.

We do this for one important reason – Georgia’s students.

With your support, we can offer every deserving and qualified student the opportunity to attend college and earn a degree.
