Keep HOPE Alive

Georgia State University has developed the ‘Keep HOPE Alive’ scholarship to allow students who have lost the HOPE Scholarship remain at the University, while they work to regain HOPE. The Office of Undergraduate Studies has collaborated with the Counseling Center, University Advisement Center, University Housing, and Academic Coaching to develop a program that is designed to help students, specifically the sophomore population, regain HOPE eligibility within the next re-entry checkpoint.

An invitation to participate in ‘Keep HOPE Alive’ is extended to all students whose grade point averages fall just below the HOPE Scholarship requirement. Students who participate in ‘Keep HOPE Alive’ will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship upon completion of the program requirements.  The scholarship will be awarded in the form of Panther Cash at the end of the academic year.

The list of eligible students is determined by the Office of Financial Aid.  The number of participants will be based on available funds, and will be determined by the Office of Undergraduate Studies.

Scholarship Criteria:

  • Program is open to freshman and sophomore students with a 2.75 – 2.99 HOPE grade point average.
  • Student must pursue a minimum of 30 credit hours within the next academic year (fall, spring, and summer semesters).
  • Students must attend Student Success workshops facilitated by the Office of Undergraduate Studies.
  • Students must meet with their academic coach on a regular basis.
  • Students are required to attend mandatory advisement sessions and mandatory CAPP sessions facilitated by the University Advisement Center.
