Application to become a GTP fellow


Students will apply for acceptance to the program after choosing a mentor who is a member of the GTP faculty, listed on this webpage. A limited number of slots will be available beginning in January of their first year for funding through December of their third year. After two years, trainee support will be the responsibility of her/his mentor. Students who are now in their second year will also be considered for acceptance for one year of funding.

By signing the application form, the mentor pledges to support the student regardless of the GTP training program acceptance decision.

In January, each trainee will become a student in the department in which his/her mentor has their primary academic appointment and be subject to that department’s requirements for matriculation and graduation. The training program can also provide limited funds for trainee travel to meetings for presentations.

The form for application can be downloaded here. Deliver a hard, signed copy of this application and your cv to Rita Hutchins, CCRC RM 2019, and also email it to ritahh@uga.edu by 5PM on the last day of classes for the fall semester. Decisions and notifications will be made by the GTP Executive Committee as quickly as possible.
