REACH Georgia Background:
Governor Deal launched REACH Georgia, the state’s first public-private needs-based scholarship program, on February 6, 2012. REACH Georgia (Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen) provides Georgia’s low-income, academically promising students with the academic, social, and financial support needed to graduate from high school, access college, and achieve post-secondary success. REACH is a key component of Complete College Georgia, which focuses on college completion to improve Georgia’s future prosperity.
This needs-based scholarship and youth development program has attracted support from diverse funding sources and donations are doubled and, in some cases, tripled, by partnering Georgia colleges. http://reachga.org/
