Our Opportunities

2021-2022 SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION
Thanks to the generosity of our scholarship donors, the Foundation provides opportunities for Dalton State students. At the direction of the donors, awards may be based on financial need, academic merit, or a combination of both factors. Unless otherwise stated in the award criteria, Foundation scholarships require the recipient to maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 at the time of application and during the time of the award. All other factors being equal, an applicant’s financial need shall be the decisive and favorable factor in determining the recipient of the award. Most Foundation scholarships require that recipients be enrolled full-time; however, part-time students may also apply and be considered for various awards.

Application Deadlines:

  • Currently enrolled Dalton State students is midnight on January 22, 2021.
  • Study abroad applicants is midnight on January 22, 2021.
  • Entering freshmen and dual enrolled students is midnight on March 12, 2021.

Contact the Dalton State Foundation with scholarship questions at 706-272-4473 or scholarships@daltonstate.edu.
