The University of Georgia Graduate School Outreach and Diversity Office will host our 11th annual Future Scholars Visitation Program on Sunday, November 13 – Tuesday, November 15, 2011.
This visitation opportunity is designed to compliment your investment in higher education.
To this end, we are pleased to announce that all participants (not currently attending or employed at UGA) are eligible to receive up to $100 reimbursable travel expenses (ex. airline, shuttle, mileage and/or parking). All selected participants will also receive a UGA graduate school application fee waiver, lodging and most meals during the 3-day program.
The Graduate School is committed to increasing diversity on the University of Georgia campus; hence, the Future Scholars Visitation Program is designed to provide students from underrepresented backgrounds the opportunity to network with current graduate students, faculty and administrators in your prospective academic department. This is an excellent opportunity as it provides an inviting and inclusive experience of the University of Georgia and the Athens community.
To be considered in our selection process, interested students must submit all application materials by the final deadline of Monday, October 3, 2011. Visit our website for complete program details and to apply today!
Please Note: The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) General Test is changing this upcoming August. Students who plan to participate in our Future Scholars Visitation Program should note that all materials need to be received in our office by October 3, 2011. As a precaution, GRE test results take about two to three weeks to be received by the Graduate Admissions Office. In preparation for the new changes, we encourage students to register to take the test before September 30, 2011 for our office to have ample time to receive all your documentation.
