HOPE Career Grant
(formerly the Strategic Industries Workforce Development Grant)

Beginning with Fall Semester 2013, students who are receiving the HOPE or Zell Miller Grant may also be eligible for additional financial assistance from Georgia’s HOPE Career Grant for specific programs designated by Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC).

To qualify, a student must be fully admitted to the college, enrolled in one of the programs designated by GSFC, and receiving the HOPE or Zell Miller Grant for the same term. The amount of the Hope Career Grant Award is a fixed amount for each term of enrollment:

Enrolled Hours Award Amount
9+ hours $500.00
3 - 8 hours $250.00
1 - 2 hours $125.00

The HOPE GED Grant, HOPE or Zell Miller Grant, and HOPE Career Grant Award can be awarded in the same term, if all other eligibility requirements are met up to cost of attendance. High school students in dual enrollment programs are not eligible for the HOPE Career Grant Award.
