UGA Scholar Weekend for 8th-11th grade students

duke-tip Registration is open for the UGA-Duke TIP Scholar Weekend to be held Dec. 1-2, 2018 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.

Scholar Weekends are open to 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 for the December weekend include post-apocalyptic literature, aircraft design, sports medicine, microbiology, marine biology, business, psychology, and the intriguing “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 is Nov. 2. Popular courses typically fill up before the 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.
