OUR CAUSE

The Board of Regents’ Scholarship Gala, hosted by the University System of Georgia Foundation, is the state’s largest event celebrating public higher education in Georgia. Gala sponsorships and donations raise funds for need-based scholarships that help provide a quality education to deserving students across the state.

Everyone who is willing to work hard to earn a college degree should have the opportunity to attend a quality public university. Unfortunately, many people today cannot afford the investment. That is why the University System of Georgia Foundation has set increasing need-based scholarship aid for USG-bound students as our number one priority. It is our goal to make it possible that a deserving student who would not otherwise be able to, attend a public college or university anywhere across the state… because it is an investment in Georgia’s future.

With many students and parents affected by the pandemic, educational scholarships are more important now than ever.
