Georgia Aid

Application for all State Scholarships/Grants

The State Scholarship Application, GSFAPPS, should be completed by students who want to be considered for the HOPE Scholarship, the Zell Miller Scholarship, the HOPE Grant, or who receive a HOPE GED Voucher. Apply online at GAfutures.org. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) can also be used as an application for these State Scholarships/Grants.

The State Scholarship Programs pay for tuition only. If the tuition of a course is less than the published rate on the Payment Schedule, the Zell Miller Scholarship, HOPE Scholarship, Zell Miller Grant or HOPE Grant will be adjusted to match the tuition charged at the lower rate. Adjustments will be made after the Drop/Add period has ended. For example, the tuition for eCore is currently less than the published rate for the Zell Miller Scholarship.

HOPE Scholarship

The HOPE Scholarship program is for students who have demonstrated academic achievement and who are seeking a college degree. There are several ways to become eligible for the HOPE Scholarship, either by graduating from high school as a HOPE Scholar or by earning it while in college. Students who meet all other eligibility requirements may receive the HOPE Scholarship until seven years after their high school graduation, home study completion, or GED test date. Explore details regarding the HOPE Scholarship at GAfutures.org.
