Managed by the Governor’s Office for Student Achievement, the plan is to hold GHP this summer at Berry College in Rome, Ga. The 2021 program will be the 58th summer, making it the longest continually running program of its kind in the nation. Students will be notified in late January if they move on to the semifinalist/interview phase of the GHP application process.
