REACH Georgia is the State of Georgia’s first needs-based mentorship and college scholarship program, launched in 2012 as a key component of the state’s Complete College Georgia Initiative. REACH provides eligible, academically promising students with the academic, social, and financial support needed to graduate from high school, access college, and achieve postsecondary success. The Scholarship is administered by the Georgia Student Finance Authority (GSFA), the same state agency that administers the HOPE Scholarship and Grant Program as well as other state- and lottery-funded financial aid programs.
