UGA-Duke TIP weekend for 8th-11th grade students

September 18, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

duke-tip Registration is open for the UGA-Duke TIP Scholar Weekend to be held Dec. 6-7, 2014 on the University of Georgia campus. This two-day program gives students the chance to study in depth a topic that is likely outside the curriculum of their school, and to do so in a college environment with like-minded peers.

Unlike the Academic Adventures program I posted about yesterday, which requires that students be registered with the Duke-TIP Talent Search, Scholar Weekends are open to any students in grades 8 to 11 who have been gifted identified by their school. This includes any students who are enrolled in honors, International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement or accelerated classes.

Topics this fall include pharmacology, fantasy literature, engineering, and several more.

Students will arrive on the UGA campus on Saturday morning, spend the day learning, stay overnight at the Georgia Center hotel on the UGA campus, and continue their studies on Sunday. Courses are taught by UGA professors, graduate students, professionals, and gifted educators.

Registration deadline is Nov. 21. Popular courses typically fill before the registration deadline. Cost is $450 if the student spends the night on campus, or $400 to attend during the day only. Financial aid may be available. Register by Oct. 23 to receive a $30 discount.
