Award Amount for the HOPE GED Grant
Recipients receive a one-time award of $500 toward their postsecondary educational costs. GED students may also qualify for the HOPE Grant for certificate and diploma programs covering tuition at eligible postsecondary institutions. The HOPE Grant is in addition to the $500 GED Grant.
In addition to the $500 GED Grant, GED students are eligible for the HOPE Scholarship once they have attempted their first 30 semester or 45 quarter hours of study with a 3.0 cumulative grade point average. The entry points are based on all degree credit attempted and coursework converted to degree credit after the award date on the GED diploma.
