The HOPE Grant is another well-known grant which is available to qualified Georgia residents who are enrolled in a diploma or technical certificate program. High school grades, graduation dates, and family income are not a consideration in determining eligibility.
Assistance covers a percentage of tuition for a maximum of 63 credit hours. Room and board costs, mandatory fees, and books/supplies are not covered through the HOPE Grant.
Students must maintain a 2.0 cumulative Grade Point Average to remain eligible. Student GPAs are checked once they have completed 30 credit hours and again at 60 credit hours.
Requirements for the HOPE Grant can be reviewed on the Georgia Student Finance Commission’s website found here: HOPE Grant
