CHALLENGE 2018 dates are set! Saturday, June 23 – Friday, July 27. Applications will be accepted from January 3, 2018 through May 25, 2018. We are expected to accept 125 participants. Last year, we reached capacity and some applicants were not able to attend. We expect this year to be the same. Therefore, if you are interested in Challenge 2018, you should apply as soon as possible to secure a spot.
The Challenge fee is $500. It has remained $500 for nearly 15 years. This year, we reviewed the cost and decided to keep the fee at $500 despite an increase in program costs to over $2,500 per student. A major consideration in our decision making was the high correlation between Challenge participation and Fall semester performance. Here at Georgia Tech, the OMED office is committed to student success and we do not want anyone to miss out on this opportunity due to cost. We hope you will choose similarly by applying to attend Challenge, today!
The Challenge fee is not due until May 29, 2018 so don’t let that affect your decision to apply.
*Please note: A small number of sponsorships are available to cover the program fee for students that demonstrate significant financial need.
