Meet the 2020-21 FACS Alumni Scholarship recipients
For many years, the Alumni Association has funded two scholarships: the FACS Alumni 4-H Scholarship and the FACS Alumni Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Scholarship. In 2019, the Alumni Association voted to increase the scholarships given to a total of three adding the FACS Alumni Association Scholarship.
Due to generous giving during the Centennial year, the Alumni Association was able to increase the award amount for each scholarship from $500 to $1,000 for the 2019-20 year, totaling $3,000 in financial support.
Recipients for the Georgia 4-H UGA College Family and Consumer Sciences Alumni Association Scholarship are selected through the Georgia 4-H Foundation. Recipients must enroll in the UGA College of Family and Consumer Sciences to be eligible for this award.
Recipients for the FCCLA UGA College Family and Consumer Sciences Alumni Scholarship are selected through FCCLA. Recipients must attend the University of Georgia in the fall semester following the awarding of the scholarship. The scholarship is contingent upon receiving an official acceptance letter.
Recipients for the FACS Alumni Association Scholarship shall be selected by the FACS Scholarship Committee and awarded to a student enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate FACS major. The student shall have a 3.0 GPA. The student must uphold the values of FACS and have a proven record of volunteer and /or leadership service to FACS, the UGA community and/or greater Athens community.
