ATLANTA (AP) -- University system of Georgia officials say money from an anonymous donor will be used to launch a new scholarship program.

Officials said Wednesday that the donor's $25,000 gift will benefit students enrolled in the state's Early College Program, and the money can be used to help students attend any of the university system's 31 institutions.

Early Colleges are small schools that focus on low-income, first generation or minority students who are working toward a high school diploma while also earning an associate's degree or transferable college credit.

There are 10 early college programs operating in the state.

Officials say the University System of Georgia Foundation will administer the scholarship program.
