Today's Georgia State Presidential Scholars are tomorrow's leaders and innovators. They are committed to performing significant work in their chosen fields-profit or nonprofit, industry, media, government, education, health care, art, science or technology. Presidential Scholars imagine a different world for themselves and others; one in which they use their passion and integrity to set positive examples for others and drive solutions to today's most pressing social and economic problems. They engage in the Honors College, the broader Georgia State community and the world, excelling academically in and out of the classroom, contributing to the college and university through service and leadership, and learning about the history and future of Atlanta and the world through internships and study abroad. Presidential Scholars achieve beyond their dreams, obtaining admission to professional and graduate schools, winning national scholarships and fellowships, and moving on to exciting careers and accomplishments throughout their lifetime.
