Georgia Tech’s Focus program is one of the nation’s premier graduate recruitment programs designed to attract highly skilled students who have historically been underrepresented in higher education, equipping them with the knowledge and resources necessary to successfully navigate the graduate admissions process.

Each year, a select group of undergraduate students (we refer to this group as Focus Scholars) who are in their third through final years of undergrad from around the nation are invited to apply to attend Focus.

All accepted scholars will be reimbursed for accommodations, meals, and transportation subsidiaries.   

During Focus, scholars will:

  • Learn about Georgia Tech's graduate degree programs
  • Learn about the financial resources that are available to them
  • Visit academic units and research laboratories to connect with faculty, staff, and potential future mentors
  • Get guidance on navigating the graduate school application process
  • Network with more than 100 scholars with similar interests and goals
