Merit-based Scholarships

Each year, Georgia Tech enrolls approximately 40 of the top incoming freshmen as Stamps President's Scholars.

Need-based Scholarships

Since 2007 the G. Wayne Clough Georgia Tech Promise Scholarship program has helped hundreds of students from Georgia – qualified, bright young men and women whose families lack the financial resources to attend Georgia Tech. The first program of its kind in the state, Tech Promise is changing lives, one student at a time.

Athletic Scholarships

Georgia Tech's student-athletes have a proud tradition of excellence, both on the field and in the classroom. Today, Tech is seeking to become one of a handful of universities to fully endow all athletic scholarships.

Graduate Fellowships

To be competitive with elite graduate programs in the nation, Georgia Tech must be able to offer graduate fellowships that attract the brightest, most promising scholars – enhancing both the prestige of the program and the capacity to attract external research dollars.
