Event Time and Date
Applications for the 2017-18 Public Service & Outreach (PSO) Student Scholars program are now available, and are due March 31.
This program provides the opportunity for a select cohort of undergraduate students to explore and engage with the University of Georgia’s public service and outreach (PSO) mission. The Student Scholars program is not a service organization per se, but rather an opportunity to learn how UGA applies expertise across the state to develop leaders, create jobs and address critical challenges in Georgia and beyond. Supported by the Office of the Vice President for Public Service and Outreach, this year-long program is intended to provide deeper understanding of PSO’s purpose, breadth, and depth through supervised service experiences with PSO and communities, to help students link their public service experiences with their career and educational goals, and to create a community of student scholars who understand the role of public service and outreach in Georgia and more broadly.
Participants take part in Friday afternoon meetings during Fall semester, to visit each of the PSO units, as well as off-site trips to Rock Eagle and to the Georgia coast; and complete a 150-hour internship within a PSO unit during Spring 2018.
