Flagship 50 Award Scenarios

Below are a few scenarios to help illustrate how the Flagship 50® scholarship works. In each case, we start by determining the difference between Oglethorpe tuition and fees and the state flagship institution’s tuition and fees. If you qualify for the program, we then make up that difference with Oglethorpe grants and scholarships, starting first with any of our traditional scholarships you qualify for and then making up the rest of the difference with a Flagship 50® scholarship. Every student’s aid award will look different, but in the end you will pay no more in tuition and fees than your state flagship’s published rate. From that final amount, we then deduct any outside state and federal scholarships and grants, which will vary by state of residence and demonstrated financial need, to arrive at the final amount due for tuition and fees. Outside aid amounts below are just examples. Your situation may vary.
