Georgia State Legislature: Make College Affordable To Everyone!

Georgia State Legislature

Since 2011, the Georgia State Legislature continuously reduced our state-based HOPE Scholarship and Grant programs, hurting marginalized students, particularly low-income and black students.

To fix this, we need to:

  • Fully fund the comprehensive needs-based financial aid program for low-income young people of color
  • Allow undocumented young people to receive in-state tuition for all public universities
  • Provide first-class access to childcare, transportation, broadband, and housing.
  • Restore the HOPE Scholarship to full tuition and fees

Sign the petition to tell your representatives: make college affordable for everyone!

Since 2010, the Georgia State Legislature continuously reduced our state-based HOPE Scholarship and Grant programs, hurting marginalized students, particularly low-income and black students.

This reduces college access, makes it more difficult to complete a degree, and weakens financial security post-college.

We call on the legislature to restore the HOPE Scholarship and Grant programs to full tuition and fees in 2018.
