HOPE Scholarship Program
As one of the most successful education initiatives in Georgia history, the lottery-funded HOPE (Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally) Scholarship Program provides Georgia students with tuition, mandatory fees, and a book allowance for attendance at any of Georgia's public colleges, universities or technical colleges. Georgia high school graduates with a 3.0 grade point average in core-curriculum classes may be eligible to receive a HOPE scholarship. A $3,500 scholarship per academic year is awarded to eligible students attending Georgia private colleges/universities full-time. The HOPE PROMISE Teacher Scholarship Program provides tuition assistance to undergraduate students who aspire to be teachers in Georgia's public schools. The HOPE Teacher Scholarship Program offers tuition assistance to teachers who seek graduate degrees in critical areas of need. Georgia residents enrolling in a certificate or diploma program at a Georgia public college, university or technical college may be eligible for the HOPE Grant regardless of high school graduation dates or grade point averages. Since inception, more than $6.6 billion in lottery proceeds has been appropriated and distributed to more than 1.3 million HOPE Scholarship recipients.
