Remember that the application is simply a plan. You do not need to have all activities completed in order to begin the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society process.

Please note that acceptance of your application does not guarantee induction into the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society. You are responsible for ensuring that you meet and complete the criteria for each of your engagement areas. 


Engagement Areas and Criteria

Overall Program Advisors

You will need to specify if you would like to participate in the program with or without an Overall Program Advisor within your application. An Overall Program Advisor can assist you in making sure you are meeting criteria and deadlines, and will review your final Synthesis Reflection. Advisors work in various departments on campus. If you choose the participate in the program without an Overall Program Advisor an FSU faculty/staff member chosen for you will evaluate your Synthesis Reflection. You may also request an Overall Program Advisor after your application is approved. 

You have two options for choosing an Overall Program Advisor.

  1. You will be able to select three potential advisors from a list within the application.
  2. You have the option to participate in the program without an Overall Program Advisor. If at some point during your time in the program you would like to be assigned an Overall Program Advisor, email garnetandgoldscholar@fsu.edu, and we will assist you. 

A list of Overall Program Advisors can also be found here. Please know, you may not be paired with your preferred advisor as they may already be advising their maximum number of students for GGSS. If this is the case, we will do our best to pair you with another compatible advisor.
