The University offers a wide variety of institutional scholarships designed to recognize academic excellence and provide access to the best and brightest students regardless of circumstance. In addition to University-Sponsored Scholarships, we have worked to procure unique scholarship opportunities for our students.

 

Undergraduate Scholarship Programs for Full-time or Part-time Students

St. George's University offers partial-tuition scholarships to citizens of CARICOM countries who otherwise, due to financial constraints, could not attend the School. The following scholarship programs are only for attendance in the undergraduate programs at St. George's University.

 

Caribbean Undergraduate Scholarship Program

The Caribbean Undergraduate Scholarship Program (CUSP) offers partial-tuition scholarships to CARICOM citizens. The CUSP scholarship can reduce the amount of tuition for undergraduate studies by 65%. Awards for the CUSP are for the duration of the undergraduate program.

 

Employee Scholarship Program

Partial scholarships are awarded to employees and their dependents for the first 30 undergraduate credits taken, as long as their employment with the University continues.

 

Professional Enhancement Program

Students who do not reside in a CARICOM country and who do not hold a degree can receive a PEP grant for up to 12 credits of non-degree courses. This grant is designed to assist students who are taking courses for personal enrichment. This partial tuition grant can reduce the amount of tuition by 65%.

If you would like to apply for any of the three scholarship programs listed above, please first apply to Admissions. After you are accepted for enrollment, you would complete your scholarship application by contacting FAID@sgu.edu and providing your full name, Student ID and chosen scholarship request.

Grenadian Partnership Award

The Grenadian partnership Award Program (GPA) offers a partial tuition scholarship to resident Grenadian citizens who demonstrate financial need.

Awards are only given to students who are matriculating into an undergraduate degree program. Beginning in August 2016, the GPA awarded to new recipients will reduce the student's tuition charge by 90%.

GPA Awards are for the duration of the undergraduate program.

Grenadian citizens are automatically reviewed for a Grenadian Partnership Award. Awards are distributed based on the student's Grenadian citizenship and matriculation in an undergraduate level program. Students will receive an award letter via email after a deposit is made.
