The University of Georgia Office of the Vice President for Research and the Graduate School are sponsoring a “Global Impact Competition,” in partnership with Singularity University (SU), for one exceptional UGA graduate student to participate in Singularity University’s 2016 Global Solutions Program (GSP16).
The competition seeks to address humanity’s grand challenges through technological innovation. Interested UGA graduate students are encouraged to develop innovative proposals that leverage technologies to address the UGA Challenge for Impact. The winning nominee will received an award to attend SU’s GSP16 this summer.
SU is not a traditional university, but rather an immersive experience that exposes select participants with imagination, leadership potential, and a passion for addressing the planet’s great challenges, to some of world’s best and brightest entrepreneurs, scientists, industry pioneers and academic leaders, as well as leading, innovative technologies. Small groups of participants selected from around the world work in teams during a 10-week period to use exponential technology to solve the world’s greatest challenges. The selected student will have the opportunity to engage in this remarkable activity that has the potential to provide a life-changing experience.
