Save Georgia's HOPE Scholarship

To be delivered to The Georgia State House, The Georgia State Senate, and Governor Nathan Deal

Petition Statement

Georgia's HOPE Scholarship is needed to send the next generation of Georgia students to college. Save the HOPE Scholarship.
There are currently 11,320 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Georgia's HOPE Scholarship has not been fully funded since 2008. Over the past year alone, the state has cut $305 million from student awards, leading many students to take on expensive student debt and increasing the number of students who leave school without finishing their degree.

The reform efforts of 2011 have failed. The HOPE Scholarship program is hemorrhaging. We need to return the program to its original intent that ensures access and opportunity to higher education for Georgia's high-achieving students.
