UWG introduces Georgia Scholars’ Institute for rising high-school juniors and seniors

February 10, 2022 Leave a comment Go to comments

The Honors College at the University of West Georgia is starting a new summer program for rising high-school juniors and seniors.

The Georgia Scholars’ Institute (GSI) is a four-week program for high-achieving students. Participants will take two honors classes, with the opportunity to earn six hours of credit toward both their high-school diploma and their college degree through Georgia’s dual enrollment program.

GSI students will live in The Oaks, a residence hall that houses UWG’s Honors Living-Learning Community. They also will take part in non-academic activities planned for them by the program.

Students who enroll at GSI through dual enrollment will not have to pay tuition, but will pay $1,500 for room and board. A limited number of scholarships to cover these costs may be available.

The application deadline is April 1, 2022. Applicants must provide a high-school transcript and ACT or SAT scores*, along with other documentation.

* If your child hasn’t taken the ACT or SAT, regular registration for the March 12 SAT test date is open through this Friday, February 11; late registration for that test date will continue until March 1.
