A Transfer Initiative for Engineering Scholars (TIES)
Funded after a competitive review process by the National Science Foundation’s Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics program, the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering’s Transfer Initiative for Engineering Scholars (TIES) is designed to support community college students transferring into the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech. During the academic year, TIES programming includes faculty and industry mentoring, access to designated teaching assistants, individualized advising and exposure to research laboratories and undergraduate research opportunities. In addition to support programs, TIES offers scholarships of up to $10,000 per year for academically talented community college transfer students in computer engineering and electrical engineering who demonstrate financial need. Approximately 90 TIES scholarships will be provided during the life of this program.
