SCHOLARSHIPS

Flagship Student Support

All Flagship students in good standing are eligible for up to $20,000 in Student Support Funding to mitigate the cost of participation in approved intensive summer language programs domestically and overseas and the Russian Overseas Flagship Capstone year in Almaty, Kazakhstan.

The funding limits set for each program category are as follows: up to $3,500 for one Domestic Summer Flagship Program, up to $7,000 for one Overseas summer Intensive Flagship Program, and up to $15,000 for one Flagship Capstone Program. The maximum total level of Student support any student may receive during his/her entire program of study is $20,000.
 

External Funding

Flagship Student Support Funding is intended to offset the cost of summer and Capstone programs and typically does not cover the entire cost of the programs. UGA Russian Flagship Program students are encouraged to apply for additional scholarships to support their Russian language study. Scholarship opportunities are listed in order of application deadlines.
