Dear FFA advisors,

Attached you will find a application packet for our 2010 Georgia Plant Science Scholars (GAPSS) summer program scheduled for June 20-25, 2010.  GAPSS is a week long residential program which gives student and teachers the opportunity to explore the world of plant science.  This program provides opportunity to attend college lectures, laboratories and facilities.  As part of the program you will tour programs and departments, participate in a mini-science conference and so much more. 


We have 30 spots designated for students and 3 spots for teachers.  There is a registration charge ($150) for students to attend the program which helps off set the cost of meals, housing and event transportation.  Teachers do not have a registration fee, instead we ask they help us with chaperoning duties in exchange for the learning the experience.  Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions. 


A brochure for GAPSS can be found at

The applications for students can be found at The application for advisors is attached to this message.
