From its inception, the Georgia Institute of Technology has had a tradition of providing access to financially disadvantaged students, beginning first with low tuition and fee charges, coupled with available scholarships, student loans, and the nation's largest voluntary co-op program. Because of these programs, Georgia Tech has opened the doors of opportunity for many students — some who were first-generation college graduates.
Although Georgia Tech is recognized as one of the nation's best buys in higher education, the cost of pursuing such an education remains one of the major expenses a family faces.
For eligible students, awards from the G. Wayne Clough Georgia Tech Promise Program will be combined with other scholarships, grants, and a Federal Work Study job opportunity to meet the student's financial need associated with the cost of full-time resident tuition, mandatory fees, an allowance for books, standard housing, personal expenses, and meal plan.
The bottom line is, we believe that Georgia students from all economic backgrounds should have the opportunity to attend the Georgia Institute of Technology. The G. Wayne Clough Georgia Tech Promise Program was created to help Georgia families who need it most.
