Did you know that one of the nicknames for the state of Georgia is The Goober State? We wouldn't make something like that up. But that's not all. The sunny belle of the South is also home to Coca-Cola, CNN and the Center for Disease Control. Which makes it a great place to be if you're thirsty or have anthrax.
Georgia features a large and well-developed university system with over 135 schools. These include institutions such as the University of Georgia, Georgia State University and Emory University. But it's not all about large research universities here, there are also small, highly regarded liberal arts colleges such as Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia. But while there are many education options to choose from here, it'll cost more than peanuts to attend.
There are a host of scholarship options to explore for the state of Georgia. Degree candidates may expect to find funding opportunities in fields such as engineering, healthcare, journalism, farm and soil science and other agricultural areas.
