77 majors qualify for the HOPE Career Grant at Wiregrass
What if your college education could be free? No student loans, no additional debt to incur. Would that be the thing you needed to finally make the decision to earn a college credential? That’s what new and current students are finding at Wiregrass Georgia Technical College with the recent addition of 40 more majors to the HOPE Career Grant list.
The HOPE Career Grant is an additional amount of money a student may receive if they are HOPE Grant eligible and enrolled in a specific major that is identified as a high demand career field. Wiregrass went from 37 majors on this list to 77 that now qualify.
Students enrolling for Fall Semester classes can speak with the college’s financial aid advisors to see if their program qualifies, and if they are eligible for this grant. A student receiving a full HOPE Grant or Zell Miller Grant award along with the HOPE Career Grant will have their tuition and fees completely covered each term they maintain eligibility.
