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 eligible for the 4-year college scholarship, Achieve Atlanta will award $5,000 per year (renewable for up to four years of school). For students eligible for the 2-year college or technical program scholarship, the award is $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.
