Whether it takes simply a certificate, an associate's degree or a bachelor's degree from a four-year university, according to Complete College Georgia, it is projected that over 60 percent of jobs in Georgia will require some form of a college education by 2025.
The mission of the Georgia Student Finance Commission is to promote and increase access to education for Georgians of all ages with numerous scholarship, grant, and student loan programs. You can learn more about these programs by checking out the many informative videos available on our YouTube page.
These videos provide basic details about all the programs administered by GSFC, including the HOPE Scholarship and our Dual Enrollment program, providing high schoolers a chance to earn college credits before earning their first diploma.
There are also webinars and presentations from members of the GSFC Outreach team with content geared for both students and professionals. These sessions focus on sources of financial aid available for students, while providing the best practices to plan, apply and pay for education beyond high school.

Kyle Runner didn't graduate from a Georgia high school, but after relocating to the Peach State, he decided to return to school.
After finishing his initial semester at North Georgia Technical College with a 4.0 grade point average, he was informed about qualifying for the Zell Miller Grant.
“I was unaware that there were any other financial assistance opportunities beyond the HOPE and Pell programs," Runner said, "and I was equally shocked and proud upon receiving this award.”
Each year, scholars are selected throughout the state to start an educational commitment that includes support from academic coaches and mentors and will conclude with a high school graduation and a $10,000 scholarship.
