Amount:

Varies based upon unmet need and available funding (Awards typically range between $500 and $2500. The maximum award is $2500.)

Priority for the Completion Grant is given to students who have exhausted their Federal Direct Student Loan or Federal Pell Grant lifetime eligibility.

  • complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process;
  • have remaining unmet need (i.e., defined as a student’s estimated financial need minus the total of his/her estimated financial assistance);
  • have one semester remaining to graduate and be able to complete all remaining graduation requirements within that final semester. This includes completion of the Examinations on United States and Georgia History and Examinations on the Constitutions requirements.
