5.6.4. Hammack Scholarships

Hammack Scholarships cover tuition unpaid by state scholarships and grants for a maximum of eight regular (fall and spring) semesters of undergraduate study in the TU program.  Recipients are selected during the annual Scholarship Weekend competition for rising first-time, full-time freshmen held on campus in January of each year.  Students must achieve a minimum SAT/ACT score, earn a minimum cumulative grade-point average in a competitive high school curriculum, and demonstrate the pursuit of entrepreneurial or business-related opportunities and the desire to major in a business field.  Each candidate will be evaluated based on a presentation, computer simulation competition, and a writing assessment.  This scholarship is renewable for a total of eight regular (fall and spring) semesters provided the recipient maintains a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.2 and completes a minimum of 12 semester hours each fall and spring semester.  Recipients of a Hammack Scholarship are required to live on campus (excluding Gables Brookhaven) while enrolled at Oglethorpe.  For application procedures and deadlines, contact the office of admission.
