Georgia Students May Lose HOPE Scholarship Money

Sep 1, 2016

A new report says Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship program will run out of money by 2028 – the year today’s pre-K students will start college. Nearly two million students have received HOPE since the program began in 1993, and 98 percent of the freshman class at UGA will be getting either HOPE or Zell Miller scholarships.

We talk with Nancy Badertscher, who authored the report “Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship: A victim of its own success?” about the effect this will have on students and the state.
