Scholarship Description

The Higher Foundation Grant promotes post-secondary education by providing need-based financial aid to Georgia college students. We award grants at $500 each directly to Georgia college students to help cover their cost of attendance expenses. Grant recipients are selected monthly August through May at random to eliminate bias, and students will remain in our random selection pool for up to one year.

Application Requirements

  • Official transcript showing current enrollment in a Georgia post-secondary institution
  • The Give Higher Campaign Video Submission
  • One-page resume
  • Professional Headshot

Our grant application has a rolling deadline, so students are encouraged to apply at any time. If you have any questions regarding your application, please contact our Higher Coordinator. If a student’s application is not selected within 1 calendar year, the student’s application will be removed, and the student is encouraged to reapply if he or she still needs financial assistance.

Once a student’s application is randomly accepted, we will request the student to provide his or her Enrollment Verification from the Office of the Registrar by the 15th of the month. Once received, the student will receive the grant award via PayPal by the 1st of the following month between August and May. All grant recipients are encouraged to submit a Higher Testimonial once the grant award has been received. Scholarship Search
