  • REACH Georgia is the State of Georgia’s mentorship and college scholarship program, launched in 2012 as a key component of the state’s Complete College Georgia Initiative. REACH (Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen) is Georgia’s mission to ensure Georgia’s academically promising students have the academic, social, and financial support needed to graduate from high school, access college, and achieve postsecondary success. Currently, in all 180 school systems throughout the state, REACH serves more than 4,300 students throughout Georgia.

    REACH Georgia is administered by the Georgia Student Finance Authority (GSFA), a companion student finance entity of the Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC). GSFC is the state agency that administers the HOPE Scholarship and Grant Program as well as other state- and lottery-funded financial aid programs. GSFC also manages the career and college preparation website, GAfutures.org and provides educational services such as free financial aid consultation and FAFSA completion assistance to high schools and postsecondary institutions across the state.

    REACH Scholar recipients must sign a contract committing to maintaining strong grades, remain drug and alcohol-free, meet with their REACH mentor regularly, maintain good attendance and behavior, develop educational and career plans and graduate from high school. School Counselors recommend students for the REACH Program each fall, followed by an interview process conducted by local business and community leaders. 
    FCS has signed at least 8 REACH scholars each year since 2014 and has 4 cohorts that have graduated high school and are currently utilizing this scholarship in college.  Congratulations to all REACH scholars! 
    The success of our REACH program would not be possible without our sponsors!
