2024 Cora Nunnally Miller Fine Arts Scholars

Alan Flurry

The Franklin College has named three current first year undergraduates as 2024 Cora Nunnally Miller Scholars in the Fine Arts. Each student will receive a $3000 scholarship, in addition to any scholarships they currently receive. The support is continuous to the student in each of the future three years as long as they continue to be majors in the arts with good academic standing.

The purpose of the scholarship, made possible as part of a $17 million gift to the university upon Miller’s passing in 2015, is to recognize exceptional artistic talent, to foster interdisciplinary collaborations in the arts, to promote the arts on the UGA campus and beyond and to give special opportunities to the students in the cohort. 

The 2024 cohort of Cora Miller Scholars in the Arts are:

Bethany Barner, a department of dance and advertising (Grady College) double major

Gregory Lown, a BFA student in the Lamar Dodd School of Art

Caroline Malcom, a piano performance major in the Hugh Hodgson School of Music

"Dean Stenport and I are delighted to welcome these undergraduates to the Cora Miller Fine Arts Scholars," said Jean Martin-Williams, professor and associate dean in the Franklin College. "In their first year of study at UGA, they have distinguished themselves as exemplars of artistic achievement and creativity. The generosity of Cora Miller will enable them to enrich their artistic study."

These three new students join the four current ones. Each spring, the Franklin College will add more first year students.
