These intellectually gifted and artistically talented students are now invited to complete an online state-level application by January 11, 2023. The semifinalists selected from that group will have the opportunity to interview or audition at Georgia Southern University on March 11, 2023. Finalists will be announced April 7, 2023.

Upon acceptance, finalists will participate in the elite, four-week, summer residential program at Georgia Southern University starting June 18, 2023. Students will attend classes in the mornings and afternoons in specific areas of study and discover life-changing instructional opportunities not found in a traditional classroom.

“Many of our students advancing in the program were also nominated on the District-level last year,” says GHP Coordinator Paula Camp. “So, this group already has a lot of experience with the application process. I’m confident we will be well represented come June when the finalists make their way to Georgia Southern University to experience a unique summer program that you really have to see to believe.”  

The Governor’s Honors Program remains fully funded by the Georgia General Assembly.
