Georgia Ready Summer Institute


July 9-14, 2024

The Georgia Ready Summer Institute is a one-week, cohort-based residential program for high-achieving underrepresented, and underserved high school students in Georgia who are going into their senior year,  with an underlying emphasis on research and innovation.

During their experience, participants will begin exploring topics such as their 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 an in-depth appreciation of their interests and how they match individuals working in a variety of professions.

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 facilities.  


Upon completion, 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 will be accepted through Wednesday, May 1st, 2024!
