HOPE Grant
The HOPE Grant program administered by the Georgia Student Finance Commission is available to qualified Georgia residents who are enrolled in a diploma or technical certificate program. Students are not required to graduate from high school with a specific grade point average. However, students are required to have a minimum postsecondary cumulative grade point average of 2.00 at designated checkpoints. The HOPE Grant award amount at a public college covers a percentage of the tuition and is determined by the Georgia Student Finance Commission based on projected lottery revenues and expenditures. The HOPE award amount is subject to change each year.

Income is not a consideration in determining eligibility for the HOPE Grant. All applicants are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). It is recommended that students file their FAFSA at least four to six weeks prior to the date the funds will be needed for registration. The application is available on line at: www.fafsa.ed.gov.

Students who do not wish to be considered for federal student aid may complete an application for HOPE and State Aid Program funding. Click here for instructions for completing the HOPE application. This application may be completed electronically at: https://www.gafutures.org/.
