UGA Graduate Dean's Award for International Study

This an International Award made to a UGA Study Abroad Program.

Purpose: To cover a study abroad program’s loss of tuition revenue, making it viable for more UGA graduate students on assistantship to study abroad.

Source: This award is generously funded by the Graduate School under the direction of Dean Maureen Grasso.

Note: Because UGA graduate assistants do not pay tuition for coursework (other than a $25 matriculation fee) and because UGA study abroad programs are often dependent on the tuition revenue generated by the credit hours in order to have the budget “make,” in the past, UGA study abroad programs often simply could not accept students on assistantship. This award provides funds to the program in place of tuition, thereby allowing more study abroad programs to accept graduate assistants and more UGA graduate students to study abroad. As a result, selected students do not receive any funds directly, and the award does not apply to non-UGA programs. Recipients must still pay the regular program fee just as do other graduate students and undergraduates; the program cannot discount or reduce the student's program fees as a result of this award.

Amount of award: An amount equal to either 3 or 6 hours’ tuition, depending on the number of hours for which the student will enroll

How paid: From the Graduate School restricted account, to be paid directly to the study abroad program, on behalf of an individual student

Deadline: March 3rd, 2014 for 2014 Maymester or Summer programs (please send all documents to Dr. Kasee Clifton Laster, Office of International Education, 1324 South Lumpkin Street). Read More
