March 2018

Amber JohnsonAmber Johnson, C’2018, was selected as a 2018 Georgia Institute of Technology Focus Scholar. The Focus Scholarship has given Smith an opportunity to learn about Georgia Tech’s graduate degree programs.

Johnson has also gained first-hand information about being a student of color at the institution from current program participants and program alumni. “If I decide to attend the Georgia Institute of Technology, I definitely feel as if there is a space for me because of the Focus Program. I feel even more prepared now for graduate school because of the various panel discussions I attended as well as about financial aid, finding balance and how to succeed as a minority in graduate school,” said Johnson, a comparative women’s studies major with a German minor.
