The Petit Scholars program began in 2000 as part of a ten-year National Sciences Foundation grant and has been continued and expanded with the help of private donations. With this year’s fundraising goal of $100,000, sponsorship opportunities are available at platinum, gold, silver and bronze levels as well as individual dinner ticket purchases. To date, the Petit Scholars program has provided funding and programs for 185 students from Georgia Institute of Technology, Emory University, Georgia State University, Morehouse College, Spelman College, Agnes Scott College, Gwinnett Technical College and the University of Georgia over the past 13 years. The Petit Scholars program is a competitive scholarship program that allows undergraduates to develop independent research projects in Petit Institute laboratories under the director mentorship of a graduate student and faculty member. The programs’ alumni go on to use their valuable research experiences in careers as research scientists, academics and physicians.
