Launched by Governor Nathan Deal in 2012, REACH (Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen) Georgia is the state’s first needs-based mentorship and college scholarship program. Its mission is to ensure that Georgia’s low income, academically promising students have the academic, social, and financial support needed to graduate from high school, access college, and achieve postsecondary success. The REACH Georgia Scholarship rewards students for self-accountability, promotes parent involvement and provides motivation and support; factors known to be critical in student educational achievement.
