Georgia Southern hosts the 11th annual Southern Scholars Showcase

Georgia Southern will host its 11th annual Southern Scholars  Showcase on December 4-5, bringing more than 140 of the brightest high school seniors from Georgia, across the nation and the world to our campus to interview for valuable and prestigious academic scholarships. 

To be invited to this interview event, students must have outstanding test scores and high school grade point averages. They are among the very best in their respective high schools. Last year the average test scores for attendees were 1349 SAT (Math and Critical Reading only) and 30 composite ACT. In addition to interviewing for scholarships, students and their parents will have the opportunity to attend a variety of informative sessions about the University ranging from topics on engineering to study abroad.

Southern Scholars Showcase is just the first chance for prospective Georgia Southern students to earn merit-based, academic scholarships.  On February 26-27, 2016, Scholars’ Day will bring an additional 270 students to campus. To qualify for an invitation to this event, a student must earn at least a 1200 on the SAT (Math and Critical Reading only) or 27 composite on the ACT and demonstrate high academic ability within the classroom.  Students who are selected as finalists will receive an invitation for Scholars’ Day and have the chance to interview for scholarships.
