HOPE Scholarship: The pros

The HOPE scholarship program was launched two decades ago with three specific goals: increase the number of Georgians with postsecondary education, improve the overall quality of the state’s university system, and stanch the exodus of high-achieving students.

When both of my boys graduated from high school—each with HOPE-eligible GPAs—they wanted UGA or nothing.
