Giving Georgians financial choices since 1965, GSFC helps Georgia students achieve their educational goals by administering financial aid programs, advocating on issues related to financing higher education, providing free financial aid consulting, and promoting financial literacy and default prevention.
Georgia Student Finance Commission programs include state- and lottery-funded scholarships, grants and service-cancelable. The Georgia Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally (HOPE) scholarship and grant programs are state funded award programs that provide financial assistance to students in degree, diploma, and technical certificate programs. The HOPE program pays partial tuition as determined by the Commission for eligible students. HOPE nor state aid can be used for Continuing Education Courses, books and supplies, or mandatory fees. For further information regarding the HOPE programs, visit GAfutures.
