University of North Georgia (UNG) Military Service Scholarship
The UNG Military Service Scholarship provides 42 full scholarships to enable outstanding Georgia students interested in pursuing part-time Army officer careers to attend the University of North Georgia, one of the nation's most prestigious senior military colleges.
The scholarship is funded by the State of Georgia and administered by the Georgia Student Finance Authority (GSFA). Recipients agree to enlist in the Georgia Army National Guard, participate in the Corps of Cadets at UNG, and commission as second lieutenants in the Guard after graduating with one of more than 70 bachelor’s degree programs at UNG.
Upon receiving commissions, lieutenants serve in leadership roles as part-time officers in one of 18 career fields such as business, cybersecurity, intelligence, medical, aviation (pilots), law enforcement, and combat-related jobs. The National Guard is called upon to provide disaster relief for victims of tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, and pandemics, and responds to wide array of other security threats. Leaders in the National Guard serve a cause greater than themselves.
While not participating in weekend or other training, officers in the Guard pursue advanced college degrees and/or have full-time jobs in business, government, education, non-government agencies, and other vocations.
