Georgia State Grant and Scholarship Programs

The State of Georgia offers a number of funding opportunities to assist with post-secondary education. The Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC) is the state agency that provides financial aid to help Georgia students realize their higher education dreams. Georgia Student Finance Commission programs include state- and lottery-funded scholarships, grants and cancelable service loans. The Georgia Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally (HOPE) scholarship and grant programs are state funded award programs which provide financial assistance to students in degree, diploma, and technical certificate programs. The HOPE program will pay partial tuition as determined by the Commission for eligible students. HOPE does not cover Continuing Education Courses, books and supplies, or mandatory fees. For further information regarding the HOPE programs, visit

The Georgia Student Finance Commission also uses the FAFSA application to determine eligibility for State Aid. It is recommended that you complete and submit the FAFSA if you are interested in receiving Georgia State Aid.

Many of you have heard of, and possibly used, GAcollege  So you’re not caught off guard, we’d like to make you aware that GAcollege411 is becoming GAfutures.

You will soon begin to see GAfutures referred to in publications and announcements from Georgia Student Finance Commission, the agency that administers our students’ state grants, state scholarships, and private loans, and from CTC’s Financial Aid Office.

The new site will better help students and families Explore, Plan, and Succeed and is expected to be “live” in the coming months.
