Request one recommendation from a UGA faculty member using the Recommendation tool in the online application, describing the applicant’s academic and personal qualifications that make him/her a good candidate for study abroad. If the referee prefers to submit a written letter or e-mail, it should be addressed to the Terry Study Abroad Scholarship Committee and either uploaded to the online application documents or e-mailed to email@example.com.
Upload a screenshot of your Athena Financial Aid "Award Overview" for the 2017-18 term as a document in the online application in the online application. Be sure that it captures all of your award information for the current academic year.
Applicants will be notified in the fall semester regarding awards via the GoAbroad Portal. Funds are disbursed to an awardee's UGA Student Account 10 days before the start of the academic term in which s/he is enrolled in a Terry faculty-led study abroad program. The credit will apply to charges in the student account, then any remaining balance will be remitted to the awardee as a refund. The awarding timeline may not align with deadlines for program deposits or other upfront costs (e.g., airfare) that a program participant may incur.
Awardees are required to submit a Thank You letter to the scholarship sponsor prior to departure, share their study abroad experience via social media channels while abroad, and serve as a volunteer ambassador upon return in at least one Terry study abroad promotional event.
