Apply for Challenge

CHALLENGE 2021 will be held June 26 - July 30, 2021.  Applications will be accepted through May 8, 2021 and the Challenge Program Fee Payment Deadline has been extended to May 15. 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 environment.

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

We will communicate any fee changes to you as soon as humanly possible. Challenge will still 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 cost of the per student  cost of over $3000.  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!

Update: The Challenge program fee payment deadline has been extended to May 15

*Please Note: Your program fee payment link will be accessible 10-14 days after accepting your invitation to join Challenge 2021.  A small number of sponsorships are available to cover the program fee for students that demonstrate significant financial need.
