Graduate Feeder Program
The Graduate School seeks to create a more diverse graduate student body at the University of Georgia by promoting opportunities in graduate education to all populations. The UGA Graduate Feeder program provides a supportive transition for undergraduate students as they learn about applying to graduate school and as they begin to assume the role of a graduate student at the University of Georgia.
As of Fall 2012, the UGA Graduate Feeder program is available to students currently attending or having graduated from the following five institutions:
Prospective graduate students from these institutions will have the opportunity to participate in UGA’s annual Graduate School, Future Scholars Visitation Program (FSVP), and the Summer Bridge program.
Benefits of participation in the UGA Graduate Feeder program include an application fee waiver for the University of Georgia Graduate School and consideration for a graduate school assistantship if admitted to the University of Georgia. The assistantship includes a reduced matriculation fee, monthly stipend and a strong peer mentorship component. For more information about the mentorship program, click here.
Students interested in the UGA Graduate Feeder program must be nominated by a key representative at their home institution. In order to be considered for the assistantship, students must submit a completed application to the Graduate School by January 1st. To learn more about the nomination process for this program, please contact the UGA Graduate School Outreach and Diversity office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 706-425-3206.
