    The Genesis Invitational is a two-day program running from Monday to Tuesday, designed to encourage a diverse population of underrepresented minority and first generation college students to strongly consider entering the Coast Guard Academy. This program is offered in the fall, and allows students direct contact with cadets, faculty, and Admissions staff. Attendees are welcomed aboard the Coast Guard Academy and receive a tour, experience classes, participate in workshops/Q&A with faculty and cadets, and discuss the application process/procedures with Admissions personnel. This program provides an opportunity for students and their families to decide if a Coast Guard Academy education is the right choice for them as they depart the Academy with a better understanding of "the Coast Guard family". The program is limited therefore an application is required.
