Senate Bill 107 /Senate Resolution 184: Proposes a constitutional amendment that would require the University System of Georgia and the Technical College System of Georgia to accept the HOPE scholarship amount as full tuition. HOPE used to cover all tuition but no longer does. As a result, students and families must pay the difference. The bill would eliminate out-of-pocket tuition charges for HOPE recipients.
Senate Bill 112: Graduating seniors in the top 3 percent of every high school would automatically qualify for the Zell Miller Scholarship, a full tuition award for the state’s highest-achieving students. The award currently goes only to valedictorians, salutatorians or those with a 3.7 GPA and at least a 1200 on the math and reading sections of the SAT.
