Ash Service Award

Kathryn and Darren Ash established the Ash Service Award to cultivate and support a culture of locally focused community service within the UGA Morehead Honors College. Awards support three Honors students who intern full-time in the summer on behalf of a local service organization, supporting programming that improves local communities.

The three recipients of the Ash Service Award receive a $3,000 stipend to cover their cost of living while interning for a local service organization for approximately 8 weeks full-time in the summer.

Applicants must provide documentation of organizational support and an already established relationship to be considered for the award. To be eligible, you must be an Honors student in good academic standing who, as of the summer, will be a rising second-, third-, or fourth-year student.

Competitive applicants will have already demonstrated a commitment to community service through prior sustained involvement. Upon completing the required service hours, recipients must provide documentation of the hours served and a report detailing the internship.

Honors International Scholars Program

The Honors International Scholars Program (HISP) supports Honors students engaging in overseas opportunities by providing scholarships with an average range of $2,500 to $5,000. HISP funding can be used for traditional university-sponsored study abroad programs, university-to-university exchanges, language institutes, internships, and research and public service projects.

HISP awards are merit-based, taking into account GPA (minimum 3.5), quality of essays, and fit of the program to the student’s academic and professional goals. The amount of each award depends upon program costs, financial need, and funds available. Applicants must be in their second or third year of college at the time of application (based upon date of enrollment, not credit hours).

For more information, contact Maria de Rocher, Assistant Dean & Director of Student Engagement & Programming and visit the HISP page.

Every year, two to four Mid-Term Fellowships are awarded to UGA Honors students who have a minimum 3.85 cumulative GPA and two years of study remaining at UGA. Mid-Term Fellowship applications are available in September and are due in December for the upcoming academic year.
