Georgia Tech Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts

Dean's Scholarship Program

Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts awards Dean’s Scholarships in recognition of incoming freshmen with a high school record of academic excellence, visionary leadership, and outstanding public service. More than 180 students competed for four scholarships awarded for the 2012/2013 academic year.


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.
