Pre-collegiate Research Conference
The Young Scholars Pre-collegiate Research Conference is held during the final three days of the Young Scholars Internship Program. The conference aims to highlight research conducted by the class of Young Scholars from the Athens, Griffin and Tifton campuses. Through oral and poster presentations, students are able to demonstrate their research in agriculture related STEM sciences. Young Scholars have the opportunity to experience campus life as a UGA student by living in residence dorms, eating in dining halls, and exploring campus through workshop sessions and social activities.
The top 3 poster and oral presentation winners from each campus received the opportunity to be featured speakers at the 2016 Pre-collegiate Research Conference. These students were also recognized at the closing ceremony for their efforts and accomplishment in competing at each campus for 1st through 3rd place
