The Public Service & Outreach Student Scholars program provides the opportunity for a select cohort of undergraduate students to explore and engage with the University of Georgia’s public service and outreach (PSO) mission. Supported by the Office of the Vice President for Public Service and Outreach, and administered through the Office of Service-Learning, this year-long program is intended to provide deeper understanding of PSO’s purpose, breadth, and depth through supervised service experiences with PSO and communities, to help students link their public service experiences with their career and educational goals, and to create a community of student scholars who understand the role of public service in Georgia and more broadly.

The program was first established in Spring 2011 with 10 students. A 10-student cohort was selected for the 2011-12 program year, 11 students took part during 2012-13, and 12 students participated in 2013-14. The 2014-15 cohort had 15 students, and the 2015-16 cohort has 20 participants.
