‘Ready to Start’ scholarship at GHC continues to make a difference

On average $200 can make the difference for a student working to complete a college degree. The “Ready to Start” scholarship at Georgia Highlands College is for any student who falls a few hundred dollars short of paying after financial aid and other scholarships have been applied.

Alongside the Georgia Highlands College Foundation, the leadership team at GHC created the scholarship to help students pay for college.

The “Ready to Start” scholarship will be applied to accounts for students who registered for spring classes and have a balance on their account that the new fund can cover.

Over 70% of first-time, full-time students at GHC rely on financial aid in addition to the support of Institutional Scholarships from the GHC Foundation.
