Three University of Georgia undergraduate students in the Vinson InstituteFellows Program concluded their spring semester projects by presenting their research results to Institute of Government faculty and staff at a gathering Friday morning.

Vinson Fellows work with faculty mentors on hands-on projects that allow them to delve into the inner workings of government, both in Georgia and abroad. Fellows meet elected officials, examine critical issues in government and education, and investigate international concerns. The fellowships give fellows the opportunity to explore the possibility of future careers in public service.

Eilidh Geddes, a double major in economics and mathematics from Dunwoody, investigated the effects of preschool education and later learning opportunities on advanced placement (AP) test performance. She worked with faculty mentor Wes Clarke, a finance and economics specialist with the Institute.
