The Georgia Tech Scholars Program is designed to recruit and enroll academically talented students from across our state. Through this program Georgia Tech will offer acceptance to valedictorians and salutatorians from Georgia high schools.
We have an established commitment to partnering with Georgia's K-12 schools to encourage more students to pursue higher education. While we are proud of our national and international initiatives, in order to fulfill our mission, it is critical to look for opportunities to ensure a close connection to our state. The Georgia Tech Scholars Program is an outgrowth of that vision.
