Meredith Paker, Economics

Private support helped Meredith Paker, who recently earned her bachelor’s degree in economics from the Terry College, make the most of her time at the University. She was a recipient of the Foundation Fellowship, UGA’s premier undergraduate scholarship, and the Stamps Leadership Scholarship, which helps exceptional students become engaged leaders in society.

Paker was heavily involved in undergraduate research at UGA, conducting studies with seasoned faculty members to contribute to the growing literature on the prevalence and impact of off-label prescriptions in the U.S. pharmaceuticals market. With an impressive record of achievement, she was selected to receive the prestigious Marshall Scholarship to pursue graduate studies in the United Kingdom.

The cost of the University of Georgia was crucial in my decision to apply to UGA as an out-of-state student. The scholarships I was awarded made attending this great institution an option I could afford. I am so thankful to have been able to prioritize my coursework and my research during my undergraduate experience, and I’m grateful to have graduated debt-free. Thank you to all donors, big and small, whose private gifts keep talented students coming to the University of Georgia.”
