Apply for Challenge

CHALLENGE 2022 will be held June 25 - July 29, 2022Challenge 2022 Application is now open!.  You will be able to apply through your Georgia Tech Admissions portal, once you receive your acceptance notice. Please select the "Summer Options" button within your admissions portal platform.  The Challenge Application and the Challenge Program Fee will be accepted through May 1, 2022


We are delighted that over 100 students applied to be a part of the Challenge 2021 cohort. 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 2022, you should apply as soon as possible to secure a spot.

The Challenge program fee will cover classes, labs, housing, trips, planned activities, health services, and other costs. The Challenge fee has remained $500 for over 17 years. Your program fee is a small portion of the per student cost of over $3000.  A major consideration in our decision to maintain the nominal program fee of $500 is 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!

*Please Note: Your program fee payment link will be accessible 10-14 days after accepting your invitation to join Challenge 2022.  A small number of sponsorships are available to cover the program fee for students that demonstrate significant financial need.
