Program Administrator for the Foundation Fellowship within the University of Georgia Morehead Honors College
Founded in 1972 by the University of Georgia Foundation’s trustees, the Foundation Fellowship is the University’s foremost undergraduate scholarship, placing students in a community of similarly dedicated scholars. There are approximately 20-25 Fellows per class year, for a total of about 100 Foundation Fellows.
It offers a stipend that approximates the cost of attendance, a post-first-year Maymester study abroad program at Oxford University, individual travel-study grants, spring group travel-study, research and academic conference grants, and dinner seminars with some of the University’s best minds and alumni.
Beyond the obvious scholastic benefits, the Fellows program emphasizes fellowship, sharing of resources and ideas, and lifelong friendships. Peer mentoring (Big and Little Fellows), dinner seminars and book discussions, cultural events, group travel, the Fellows Library in Moore Hall, and twice-a-year retreats promote a sense of community among the Fellows.
