Students interested in entering a field in which there are plenty of job openings can choose to enroll in one of OTC’s programs of study for which this grant covers the cost of tuition.

The HOPE Career Grant, formerly known as the Strategic Industries Workforce Development Grant,  is the boost a student needs to get started on the right path to an exciting career.

It also helps Georgia employers by creating a pipeline of skilled workers they can hire well into the future.

Program Eligibility

Full-time enrollment in a certificate or diploma program is not required and students are not required to graduate from high school with a specific GPA, however, they must have a postsecondary cumulative 2.0 GPA, at certain checkpoints, in order to maintain eligibility.

Note:

A student who received a high school diploma (High School Postsecondary Graduation Opportunity Plan) by earning a technical college diploma or two technical college certificates, in one career pathway identified by the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG), may be eligible for the HOPE Grant, up to 30 degree hours. The student must be enrolled in an associate degree program at a TCSG institution in order to receive the HOPE Grant. After payment for 30 semester hours, the student is no longer eligible for HOPE Grant while enrolled in a degree level program. The student must then meet the HOPE Scholarship eligibility requirements at the 30 semester hour checkpoint.
