Georgia First Program

Georgia First

 

WHAT IS GEORGIA FIRST?

Georgia First does just that, puts the people, communities, industries, and resources of the State of Georgia FIRST. We accomplish this by developing our students, enhancing innovative research, creating collaborative industry partnerships, and building connections with State entities, all  with a focus on inclusive excellence. A first of its kind program centered on Georgia’s university education system, its resources, and both established and new industry partnerships with UGA’s Department of Geology and the Franklin College of Arts & Sciences as its home. The scope and impact of the program is far reaching and offers students, industry leaders, and supporters of the State of Georgia a wide array of opportunities to be involved.
