Students around Georgia may be affected if the HOPE scholarship does not make-up for a financial shortage.

This year funds for the HOPE scholarship will fall short by $244,000,000.That’s nothing compared to the $317,000,000 shortage anticipated for next year. The fund has a reserve of $850,000,000, but with increased enrollment and spikes in tuition rates, that will not last. House Speaker Pro Tem Jan Jones says the changes made to the HOPE scholarship are fair and  most people will approve of them.

One of the proposed changes is paying part of the student’s tuition rather than the full amount, which under current circumstances is given to  students who maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA.
