The Provost Scholarship awards 60 first-year, non-resident students an out-of-state tuition waiver for eight semesters. Scholars are selected by the Office of Special Scholarships.
Students selected are notified via email within two weeks of their offer of admission for early action or regular decision (see decision release dates). Students who are not selected will not be contacted.
Students selected as Provost Scholars are those who demonstrate extraordinary academic achievement, outstanding leadership skills, and have high potential to contribute inside and outside the classroom at Georgia Tech. The factors considered for selection of the Provost Scholarships are the same as for admission.
No. Our selection committee will utilize the information you supplied on your application for admission to chose the recipients.
Sixty Provost Scholars are chosen from the pool of thousands of accepted first-year from outside the state of Georgia.
The scholarship is for up to eight semesters of enrollment in an amount equal to the non-resident portion of tuition charges. 12 credit hours must be taken during the semester to be eligible for this award.
Recipients must achieve and maintain at least a 3.00 cumulative grade point average.
A student can be considered for both, but will not be awarded from both offices.
Only students admitted for the summer term may request to start using the Provost Scholarship in the summer. If you were admitted for fall, that is when it will be first awarded.
