SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION FOR PARENTS/STUDENTS:
Beginning in January of 2017, the Georgia Driver’s Education Commission will begin a new scholarship program in which students may apply for a driver’s education grant scholarship. The student will apply for the scholarship directly from the Georgia Driver’s Education Commission through an online application at www.gahighwaysafety.org/gdec/. Upon award of the scholarship, students will be provided with a redemption code and may choose a provider from a list of authorized driver training schools to redeem the grant scholarship. The driver training school will redeem the grant scholarship through an online portal. Once the student has completed the driver’s education course, the provider will upload a copy of the OCRA certificate to the online portal and request reimbursement for the driver’s education course. Due to IT infrastructure delays, the student application will be available on March 1, 2017. Please check this website www.gahighwaysafety.org/gdec/ for updates as information will posted as soon as it becomes available, including a link to the student application.
