Doug Toma Memorial Scholarship

THIS AWARD IS AVAILABLE ONLY TO STUDENTS CURRENTLY PARTICIPATING IN THE FRANKLIN RESIDENTIAL COLLEGE

Created in 2012, the Doug Toma Memorial Scholarship Fund was established as an enduring legacy in honor of Professor J. Douglas “Doug” Toma.  Dr. Toma’s work helped to foster international partnerships for the Institute of Higher Education, where he taught, and for the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, where he was Dean of the Franklin Residential College.

General Requirements for All Scholarships

• Must be a current resident with the Franklin Residential College

• Must be a currently enrolled in a Franklin College Undergraduate Major

• Must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 at the time of this application (for the previous
  graded semester at UGA)

These scholarships are based on both need and merit, therefore:
An applicant must already have completed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA form—that is, a FAFSA based on taxes filed in January of the previous year.  Once a FAFSA has assessed your financial need, that summary is sent to the UGA Office of Student Financial Aid, where it becomes a part of your records in ATHENA.  All scholarship applicants must provide an ATHENA print-out of the “Award Package” for the current academic year.  We cannot extend our scholarship application deadline, nor can we accept an application that does not contain a print-out of the ATHENA “Award Package” for the current academic year.

APPLICATION AND ALL SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIALS DUE BY FEBRUARY 3, 2017
