Up to six scholarship recipients receive a $2000 award their first year, with the opportunity to continue the scholarship, based upon merit, for three subsequent years. The scholarships are in addition to the Hope Scholarship in-state students receive.

In addition to the financial award, Dean's Scholars meet personally with the Dean, the Associate Dean of the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, as well as Georgia Tech executive administrators and faculty. They enjoy special opportunities designed to enhance their development as problem solvers, innovators, top tier leaders, and global citizens.

The application for Dean's Scholarships is a competitive, merit-based process. Scholarships are awarded in the spring to high school students who enroll for fall semester in majors within the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.
