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

duke-tip Registration is open for two UGA-Duke TIP Scholar Weekends to be held 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.

The two available weekends are Jan. 27-28 and March 3-4, 2018.

Scholar Weekends are open to any students in grades 8 to 11 who either participated in the Duke-TIP 7th Grade Talent Search or have been gifted identified by their school. This includes students who are enrolled in honors, International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement or accelerated classes.

Topics include music, psychology, marine biology, global politics, public speaking, and “Star Wars mock trial.”

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

Registration deadline for Jan. 27-28 is Jan. 19; the deadline for the March weekend is Feb. 9. Popular courses typically fill before the registration deadline. Cost is $450. Financial aid may be available.
