Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts announces the establishment of the Dean’s Scholarship Program for incoming freshmen students.
The program will award six scholarships for fall 2011. As many as twelve scholarships may be awarded when the program is fully implemented.
Jacqueline Jones Royster, Dean of the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts said, “These scholarships will help fulfill the dreams of students who otherwise might not be able to pursue the innovative technology-centered liberal arts degree programs offered here at Georgia Tech. We are proud and grateful to be able to enlarge the opportunities for young students to be among the problem solvers and innovators, the top tier leaders and global citizens that we graduate from this College.”
Dean’s Scholarships will be awarded to incoming freshman based upon academic performance, leadership, and public service. Recipients will receive $2000 in their first year, with the opportunity for up to $8,000 in total financial support across the recipient’s four years in the College.
Associate Dean John Tone said, “We recognize the financial challenges faced by families today as college expenses rise so we are thrilled to be able to offer this financial support to incoming students.”
There is no application process for the awards. Dean’s Scholarships will be granted each spring.
