    HOPE Scholarship
    HOPE — Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally — is Georgia's unique scholarship and grant program that rewards students with financial assistance in degree, diploma, and certificate programs at eligible Georgia public and private colleges and universities, and public technical colleges. HOPE is funded entirely by the Georgia Lottery for Education, which also funds Georgia's statewide prekindergarten program. Since the HOPE Program began in 1993, over $3.5 billion in HOPE funds have been awarded to more than 1 million students attending Georgia's colleges, universities, and technical colleges. You can benefit from HOPE in several ways.
    If you are a Georgia resident enrolling in a degree program at a Georgia public college, university, or technical college, you may be eligible for the HOPE Scholarship. Recipients must demonstrate academic achievement by earning and maintaining a 3.0 grade point average. The award at public institutions covers tuition, HOPE-approved mandatory fees, and a book allowance. If you wish to enroll in a Georgia private college and you are HOPE eligible, you qualify for a some scholarship money for full-time study.
