The University of Georgia Graduate School Outreach and Diversity Office (ODO) is delighted to announce the 10th annual Future Scholars Visitation Program to be held on November 7 – 9, 2010.
This opportunity serves as a recruitment tool for prospective graduate students to visit the University of Georgia campus. This program follows along with the University of Georgia’s strategic plan to create a more diverse environment by recruiting students from underrepresented populations. Graduating seniors and alumni from various institutions, including all Georgia colleges and universities, minority-serving institutions, and graduate preparation programs are invited to apply.
The Future Scholars Visitation Program is an excellent opportunity for students who are seriously considering the University of Georgia’s Graduate School to come to campus and visit their prospective department. The goal of this visitation is to allow students to meet with faculty, administration, and current graduate students in their specific area of academic interest while learning more about graduate school. During the three day program students will:
* Network with fellow prospective students
* Attend informational sessions with Graduate School representatives
* Receive feedback on their application and statement of purpose
* Learn more about funding opportunities
* Participate in social events
