The following are instructions from GSFC to use to apply for the HOPE & Zell Miller scholarships. Zell requires that you submit your SAT or ACT score directly to the Georgia Student Finance Commission, as described below.

HOPE & Zell Miller Scholarship Application Procedures

To check your HOPE calculated GPA, you must log-in to your GAFutures account. If you qualify to receive the HOPE Scholarship or Zell Miller Scholarship after graduation, follow the instructions below to apply:

For both the HOPE and Zell:  Fill out either the FAFSA or GSFAPPS or both.  www.fafsa.gov  or www.gafutures.org(must login to student account).

  1. To be eligible for the Zell Miller scholarship, the HOPE calculated GPA must be at least a 3.7 and the student must have an ACT score of at least 26 or an SAT score of at least 1200 (math and reading).
    1. Request to have your SAT score sent directly to the Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC) using code “0472” (from your SAT account www.sat.org)
    2. Request to have your ACT score sent to your home and then forward the unopened report to GSFC at 2082 East Exchange Place Tucker, GA 30084
    3. You only need to send one test score to GSFC – the highest one achieved in one sitting
  2. If your student has a 3.0 – 3.69 HOPE calculated GPA, they do not have to send a test score, because they do not qualify for Zell Miller.  The percentage of tuition paid each year by the HOPE scholarship varies from year to year based on GA Lottery revenue.  The Zell Miller scholarship still pays 100% of tuition at public GA colleges/universities.
  3. Students can check their current HOPE calculated GPA on their account at www.gafutures.org
  4. After spring semester grades are posted, Etowah will upload all transcripts to the GSFC.  Your student’s college will communicate directly with GSFC to determine how much tuition to charge you.

If you have any further questions, please contact your college/university and/or Mr. Hilliard at GSFC as they are going to be your best source for information on HOPE and Zell Miller Scholarships.
