Hope Scholarship

A scholarship for degree-seeking, postsecondary students in Georgia who attend a public or private university in the state. The scholarship pays full tuition at a public university (or an equivalent amount for a private university), along with most mandatory students fees and an allowance to buy textbooks. The scholarship was created in 1993 and is funded by the Georgia lottery.
