Below is a brief overview from http://gosa.georgia.gov/governors-honors-program
"The Georgia Governor's Honors Program (GHP) is a four-week, summer residential program designed to provide intellectually gifted and artistically talented high school students challenging and enriching educational opportunities not usually available during the regular school year.
Activities provide each participant with opportunities to acquire the skills, knowledge, and attitudes to become independent, life-long learners. The Georgia Governor's Honors Program is fully funded by the Georgia General Assembly and operates at no cost to participants.
High School sophomores and juniors in public, private, and home schools are eligible for nomination in one of twenty areas.
In July 2013, Gov. Nathan Deal signed an executive order transferring the administration of the Governor's Honors Program from the Georgia Department of Education to the Governor's Office of Student Achievement, effective August 1, 2013. As this transition occurs, GOSA will post more information about 2014 Governor's Honors Program during late summer and fall 2013."
