Title:Georgia's HOPE scholarship and minority and low-income students: Program effects and proposed reforms
Short Description:This chapter examines Georgia’s HOPE (Helping Outstanding Students Educationally) Program and its effects on underrepresented minorities and low-income students.
Annotation:This chapter examines Georgia’s HOPE (Helping Outstanding Students Educationally) Program and its effects on underrepresented minorities and low-income students, building on earlier work (Cornwell & Mustard, 2002). The previous study concluded that, in the first five years of the program since its founding in 1993, HOPE raised the enrollment rate (the ratio of first-time freshmen to recent high-school graduates) in Georgia colleges eight percent relative to the average enrollment rate in other member states of the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB). This gain was realized primarily at four-year institutions, a pattern that held for both Whites and Blacks, although the percentage increase for Blacks was higher. The relatively large increase for Blacks is explained in large part by the presence of several relatively large Historically-Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in Georgia.
