Shirley Miller Scholarship
The Shirley Miller Scholarship awards qualified HOPE Scholarship recipients an annual supplement that pays the difference between their current HOPE award and the cost of tuition. The scholarship is named in honor of former First Lady Shirley Miller in recognition of her lifelong contributions to education.
The mission of this scholarship fund is to restore Zell Miller’s vision of providing full tuition to every qualified HOPE Scholarship recipient enrolled in a University System of Georgia (USG) or a Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) institution.
All HOPE Scholarship recipients must be 18 years of age or older and currently enrolled in a USG or TCSG institution. All applicants are welcome. Until fully funded, the Zell Miller Foundation will prioritize applicants based on the following criteria:
Applicants who are Black, Asian, or Hispanic;
Applicants enrolled in a public Historically Black College or University (HBCU);
Applicants whose annual household income is below the median household income in Georgia;
Applicants who are first generation college students;
Applicants who are in their senior year.
Governor Zell Miller established the Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally (HOPE) Scholarship in 1993 as a lottery-funded, merit-based scholarship that originally covered full tuition for Georgia students attending an eligible USG or TCSG institution.
A HOPE Scholarship recipient must graduate from a Georgia high school with a minimum 3.00 grade point average and maintain a minimum 3.00 cumulative grade point average to remain eligible. The Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC) is responsible for administering the program.
Over the past 27 years, the HOPE Scholarship has been immensely successful, with over 1.9 million students benefiting from over $11.3 billion in awards. The HOPE Scholarship has led to increased college attendance rates, increased high school graduation rates, increased standardized test scores, and increased post-secondary degree completion. We believe providing supplemental funding for HOPE students will strengthen these outcomes.
Greenhouse Scholars Program
To be eligible, applicants must:
Be a graduating high school senior planning to attend a four-year accredited academic institution
Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and a legal resident of Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, or North Carolina.
Have a cumulative, unweighted GPA of 3.5 or above
Demonstrate financial need (annual household income no greater than $70,000)
Possess excellent leadership skills, an ability to persevere through difficult circumstances, and a strong interest in and commitment to their community.
