ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — The University of Georgia and the Clarke County School District have launched a new initiative aimed at bringing K-12 students to the university every year to learn more about college. The initiative, called Experience UGA, will include annual field trips starting in kindergarten for those attending schools in the district. Officials say the goal is to increase college enrollment and student success. Previously, funding was not available to pay for annual field trips reaching the district's more than 12,000 students. Officials say substantial financial support is being provided through the President's Venture Fund. Private donations and grants are also being sought. This year, seven field trips are being planned to cover a range of topics from art and music to biological sciences.
