Georgia resident students wishing to apply only for the HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarships can do so by visiting the GAfutures.org website and completing the Georgia Scholarship / Grant Application (GSFAPP). Once on GAfutures.org, you can access the GSFAPP by clicking on the “HOPE & State Programs” tab, and then clicking on “State Aid Applications”.
The GSFAPP should be completed as early as possible so eligibility can be determined.
Generally, students do not need to complete another GSFAPP while enrolled at UGA unless their GSFAPP has been completed for more than 84 months and has expired.
Students who fail to complete the GSFAPP before the last day of the semester for which the scholarship is sought will not receive funding for that semester.
Once the UGA Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) either receives electronic confirmation of the First-Year (Freshman) Student’s HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship eligibility from the GSFC or has determined the eligibility of the new Transfer or Continuing UGA Student, OSFA will award the student the HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarship. Choose “Your Award Status” from the main menu to access your Application Status or Award Status in Athena.
