ATLANTA (AP) -- A powerful Georgia lawmaker wants the HOPE grant to extend to the Georgia Military College.
Augusta Republican Ben Harbin says that the popular grant does
not now extend to the military school, which describes itself as a
"public-independent educational institution." The school runs
junior colleges in Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Madison,
Milledgeville, Sandersville, Valdosta and Warner Robins.
The HOPE grant Georgia's is available to students attending
public tech schools or public colleges or universities regardless
of high school graduation date or school grades.
Harbin, who is the chair of the House Appropriations Committee,
has introduced similar legislation in past sessions to include the
military college.
