UGA president establishes need-based scholarship fund

University of Georgia President Jere W. Morehead is continuing his commitment to students through a personal contribution establishing a need-based scholarship fund, in honor of his parents, designed to help undergraduates study in the nation’s capital.

With nearly 7,000 students attending the university who are eligible for the Pell Grant, “raising support for need-based scholarships is one of my priorities,” Morehead said, “and I hope to lead the way for many others to help students with financial need.”
