Student Opportunities

The United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP)

The United States Senate Youth Program sends two delegates from every state to spend a week in Washington, D.C., where they study our government firsthand. There is also a $10,000 college scholarship for each delegate.

Georgia's deadline for United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP) applications has been extended to October 29, 2021. 

While in previous years, students had to apply t​hrough their school or district USSYP coordinator and only one student per school district was nominated, this year any high school junior or senior may apply to participate in the United States Senate Youth Program, provided they meet the criteria and secure signatures from their principal and school counselor.

Emory University CORE Virtual Series 
This year Emory University is continuing their Cultural Outreach, Recruitment, and Education (CORE) Virtual Series for high school seniors who are either first-generation college students and/or from historically underrepresented cultural or socioeconomic backgrounds, including Black/African American, Latinx/Hispanic, Underrepresented Asian Americans and Pacific Islander, and Native/Indigenous students. 

The CORE Virtual Series serves as an additional support system for students navigating the college application process and will provide monthly webinars, office hours, and faculty chats to participants. 


Through programming, Emory will help bridge educational gaps by engaging in conversations related to the admission process, build community for students who want a safe space for mentoring and encouragement in the application process, and introduce the heart and culture of the Emory community. 

The CORE Virtual Series will run from August through December 2021, supporting students all the way through the application process. Programming will include tailored webinars, drop-in office hours with admission staff, panels with current students, and faculty-led discussions.
