GT H.U.B. provides support to students experienced foster care, and who have or are at risk of experiencing homelessness. The program assists students who do not have a "family" support system at Georgia Tech.
Financial support, programs, and resources are intended to provide an inclusive and communal environment leading to increased retention and student success.
Residence Hall Kits
Each student can receive with a move-in kit including: sheets, pillow, comforter, towels, hand towels, wash cloths, shower caddy, laundry detergent, desk lamp, cork board, white boards, toilet tissue, paper towels, blanket, body loofah, trash can, alarm clock, and hangers.
Dues for Clubs, Intramural sports, Greek organizations, LLCs
Best practice shows that student involvement in campus organizations is critical to retention and student satisfaction. Our students are encouraged to join clubs, Greek Life, LLCs, and intramural sports teams. They will apply for the funds from the GT H.U.B. Scholarship to cover the costs of associated dues.
Summer housing fees/Bridge loans for internship/co-op students
Students who need funding for short-term housing while pursuing an internship or co-op can apply for support through the GT H.U.B. Scholarship.
Alternative Service Break Trip
Each student will have the opportunity to participate in an Alternative Service Break Trip through the Office of Student Engagement. Students must apply to join an ASB trip and if selected could then access GT H.U.B. Scholarship fund to pay their trip fees.
Students will receive information on how to sign up to spend Thanksgiving with local families through the Student Government Association's "Home for the Holidays" program or informally through the GT H.U.B. volunteer families.
Mentors are GT faculty and staff who are trained to provide one-on-one mentoring to GT H.U.B. students. Mentors will help their students navigate the Institute, discuss challenges, identify strengths, build their network and provide overall support.
