Achieve Atlanta Scholarships

Scholarship Sponsored by Achieve Atlanta

Value: $20,000
Awards Available: 840
Deadline : May 31, 2023

The Achieve Atlanta scholarship is a need-based award designed to support APS students pursuing various post-secondary paths after high school. For students eligible for the 4-year college scholarship, Achieve Atlanta will award $5,000 per year (renewable for up to four years of school). For students eligible for the 2-year college or technical program scholarship, the award is $1,500 per year (renewable for up to two years of school). When combined with other possible sources of financial aid, the Achieve Atlanta scholarship should greatly reduce the need for students and families to take out high-interest, private loans to pay for school. The Achieve Atlanta scholarship is an important part of Achieve Atlanta's broader effort to dramatically increase the number of APS students who earn a post-secondary degree or credential.

To be eligible for an Achieve Atlanta scholarship, you must:

A) Graduate from an APS high school (includes charters)

B) Be enrolled in an APS high school continuously since at least the start of 11th grade

C) Graduate with a cumulative, weighted GPA of at least 75 to qualify for a scholarship to a technical school or associate degree program

D) Graduate with a cumulative, weighted GPA of at least 80 to qualify for a scholarship to a 4-year college or university

E) Complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)

F) Demonstrate financial need through an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) of $0 – $8,000 on the FAFSA Student Aid Report (this will be determined once you complete the FAFSA)

G) Enroll full-time in an accredited, non-profit college or technical program by the fall immediately following high school graduation (NOTE: To use the scholarship outside the state of Georgia, you must attend a school that has a graduation rate of 44% or higher as determined by the College Scorecard.)
