Sponsor a Student
In order to make TEDxUGA accessible to all UGA students, registrants have the opportunity to sponsor a student. TEDxUGA partners with several on-campus organizations to distribute student sponsorship tickets. Tickets are distributed to students based on financial need and interest. In an effort to respect the privacy of recipients, all student sponsorships are anonymous.

Sponsored tickets are available at the student ticket rate of $15. To sponsor a student, select Sponsor a Student as a registration option. The student sponsorship will be added to your total, and the ticket will be distributed on your behalf. If you would like to purchase a ticket for a specific student, select the Student Ticket option.

Thank you for your support in making TEDxUGA’s mission of ideas worth spreading accessible to all UGA students.
