Two spring UGA-Duke TIP weekends for 8th-11th grade students

duke-tip The University of Georgia will host two UGA-Duke TIP Scholar Weekend sessions this spring: Feb. 9-10 and March 30-31, 2019.

The Scholar Weekend program gives students the chance to study a topic that’s outside the typical school curriculum, and to do so in a college environment with like-minded peers.

Scholar Weekends are open to any students in grades 8 to 11 who have been gifted identified by their school. This includes anyone enrolled in honors, International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement or accelerated classes.

Topics this spring include aircraft design, Star Wars mock trial, microbiology, marine biology, psychology, sports medicine and more.

Students 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 the February weekend is January 28. Deadline for the March session is March 1. Popular courses typically fill before the registration deadline. Cost is $450. Financial aid may be available.
