Georgia Military Service Scholarships at University of North Georgia

Every year, they award 42 Georgia high school students full scholarships to attend the University of North Georgia (UNG) – The Military College of Georgia and participate in the Corps of Cadets—the Boar’s Head Brigade. The application process is fairly involved. Detailed information and application instructions are at ung.edu/cadet/scholarships, then select “UNG Military Scholarship.”

The Georgia Military Service Scholarship (GMSS) pays for tuition, fees, room, meals, books, and uniforms for eight semesters; about $80,000 over four years. ---- In addition to the $80,000 scholarship, most recipients earn pay and benefits as Soldiers in the Guard that total at least $30,000 and up to $55,000 during their time in college, and many are paid even more for occupying leadership roles in the Corps of Cadets.

Applicants who are offered the scholarship enlist in the Georgia Army National Guard, participate in the Corps of Cadets at UNG, earn a bachelor’s degree of their choice, and upon graduating, commission into the Georgia Army National Guard as second lieutenants.
