New Changes to Georgia Hope Scholarship

What is Hope Scholarship

The Hope Scholarship in Georgia was started several years ago with funds from the purchase of lottery tickets in the state of Georgia.  The program was meant to assist parents with Pre-K children and college students.  The Georgia Hope Scholarship Program has helped over 180,000 children attend either Pre-K or college over the years.  The scholarship pays for all tuition for any State college or university which range from $2500 to $3000.  Private college students receive at least $4,000 towards their tuition.

Why Is the HOPE Scholarship Changing

As we all know, states across the country are facing budget problems.  One of the problems in Georgia is that the Georgia Lottery is taking in less money than is going out.  This means that some changes must be made to the guidelines to get the scholarship.
