Georgia Ready Summer Institute

July 11-16, 2023

The Georgia Ready Summer Institute is a one-week, cohort-based residential program for high-achieving underrepresented high school students throughout Georgia who are going into their senior year. The institute's focus will center on research and innovation for this inaugural year.

During their experience, participants will begin exploring desired research interests, discovering how researchers identify problems, collect & analyze data, and engage in entrepreneurial and commercialization endeavors. Additional activities will provide the pre-collegiate scholars with a greater understanding of themselves, fostering enhanced critical thinking and public speaking skills by participating in an active-learning activity that will broaden their conceptions of diversity and inclusion, uncovering how societal issues can impact their work. Most importantly, participants will gain a glimpse of what life as a UGA scholar is like, living in a campus residence hall, eating at our award-winning dining facilities, as well as touring the Athens campus and various research facilities.  


The Georgia Ready Summer Institute experience will:

ENHANCE participants’ conceptions of undergraduate research prior to their college enrollment, assisting in cultivating potential research interests.

EXPAND participants' grasp of innovation, its inherent correlation to research, and highlight embedded ethical considerations.

FOSTER participants’ career & professional development through the establishment of peer and near-to-peer networks, bolstering their conceptions of self, critical thinking, problem-solving, and cognitive diversity skills.

STRENGTHEN participants’ commitment to the G, intentionally engaging them with our world-class faculty, research facilities, prominent alumni, and vital resources (e.g.,  the Jere W. Morehead Honors College) throughout the institution.


Applications for Summer 2023 will open in March 2023.
