About the Scholarship
The Achieve Atlanta scholarship is a need-based award designed to support APS students pursuing various post-secondary paths after high school. For students attending a 4-year college, Achieve Atlanta will award up to $5,000 per year (renewable for up to four years of school). For students attending a 2-year college or technical program, the award is up to $1,500 per year (renewable for up to two years of school). When combined with other possible sources of financial aid, the Achieve Atlanta scholarship should greatly reduce the need for students and families to take out high-interest, private loans to pay for school. The Achieve Atlanta scholarship is an important part of Achieve Atlanta’s broader effort to dramatically increase the number of APS students who earn a post-secondary degree or credential.
