Presidential Scholarships

Today’s Savannah State Presidential Scholars are tomorrow’s leaders and innovators. They are committed to performing significant work in their chosen fields—profit or nonprofit, industry, media, government, education, health care, art, science or technology. Presidential Scholars are visionary regarding the diverse world that awaits them and their peers; a world where their intense passion for excellence and high character will set examples for those around them and will produce solutions to some of the most pressing problems we face in our world. They engage in the Honors Program, the broader Savannah State community and the world, well-rounded in excellence evidenced by their success in and outside of the classroom, while contributing to the college and university through service and leadership, and learning about the history and future of Savannah and the world through internships and study abroad. Presidential Scholars achieve beyond their dreams, obtaining admission to professional and graduate schools, winning national scholarships and fellowships, and moving on to exciting careers and accomplishments throughout their lifetime.

Presidential Scholarships are awarded competitively to outstanding incoming freshmen from the state of Georgia. The awarding process is highly selective. Presidential Scholarships are made possible by the generous contributions of donors to Savannah State University Annual Scholarship fund.
