HOPE SCHOLARSHIP:

The HOPE Scholarship* is Georgia’s unique and nationally recognized program for helping its students succeed. HOPE (Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally) is former Governor Zell Miller’s educational program to reward students who have earned good grades by helping with the expense of continuing their education after they graduate high school.

HOPE may be used at public technical colleges and eligible public or private colleges and universities in Georgia. The program is funded by the Georgia Lottery for Education which began in 1993.

The Georgia Lottery for Education is also used to augment public (K-12) school system facilities, provide learning tools, and increase teacher salaries making Georgia’s public schools among the best in the nation.

HOW IT WORKS
You may receive HOPE assistance if you enroll at an eligible Georgia public technical college. The HOPE Grant is awarded for study leading to a certificate or diploma. Many technical colleges offer two-year degree programs as well. The HOPE Scholarship is awarded to students in degree programs, who must meet different qualifications than students earning a certificate or diploma.

THE HOPE GRANT
Georgia residents who are attending a Georgia public technical college to earn a certificate or diploma are eligible for a HOPE Grant regardless of high school graduation date or grade average. You may receive the Hope Grant for two programs of study leading to a certificate or diploma.

Full-time enrollment is not required, but you must be making satisfactory academic progress to maintain eligibility.
