HOPE and Zell Miller Scholarship Application Changes

As a result of legislation passed during the 2013 Legislative Session (House Bill 324), and signed by the Governor, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will NOT be required as part of the application for those students seeking HOPE and Zell Miller Scholarships. A FAFSA will remain an acceptable application for state scholarships and can be submitted if the student desires. If a student chooses not to submit a FAFSA, the GSFApps application at www.gacollege411.org can continue to be used to apply for state scholarships.

A FAFSA is still required for students applying for federal student financial aid such as Federal Pell Grants, Federal Work Study and Federal Direct Student Loans. Students who already have a GSFApps Application on file are not required to complete a new one.
