New budget brings back full tuition HOPE Scholarship

by The 100 Companies

In May, Gov. Brian Kemp signed a new state budget that will pay full tuition for all HOPE Scholarship recipients while increasing salaries for state and university workers and public school teachers.

The new budget ends the previous two-tier system of lottery-funded HOPE Scholarships, returning to the original method of providing full tuition to all high school graduates with a B average. The new budget does cut some teaching funds at the state’s public universities, but not as much as the Senate had initially proposed.

The amount of HOPE Scholarship payments made to students attending private Georgia universities also increased.
