To earn course credit, you are required to complete a weekly journal. Once you return to campus, you must also be available for outreach to other Georgia Tech students.
Selection is based on a potential for leadership as indicated by your grades, work experience, extracurricular activities, interests, and maturity. You will be asked to furnish a transcript and resume, as well as two references from people who have taught you or worked with you.
