Ga Sou doubles REACH scholarship

Written by  Georgia Southern News Dept Tuesday, 29 July 2014 09:18

  Georgia Southern University President Brooks Keel recently announced the University will double-match funds for the needs-based, Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen (REACH) Scholarship program. During the program, REACH Scholars receive a renewable annual tuition scholarship of $2,500 for use at a HOPE-eligible institution. Georgia Southern will increase the amount to $5,000.

 

  The program begins in middle school where students must sign a contract agreeing to maintain a “C” or better in core classes, attain a grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or better in high school and a 2.0 GPA in college, remain drug free, attend REACH program activities, develop educational and career plans, and maintain good attendance and behavior. Parents and guardians must agree to encourage their children to abide by REACH requirements.

 

  In making the announcement Keel said Georgia Southern is one of the first public universities to double-match the REACH scholarship.  “Through additional corporate partnerships, donations and proceeds the University receives from the sale of its specialty license plates, Keel said Georgia Southern will invest in the future of the state, one life at a time, by dedicating additional funds to the program.
