Default Do any other states have something similar to Georgia's Hope Scholarship program?

From what I hear, the top high school students get free tuition to Univ of GA. I was wondering if this was the only state that offered this.

Florida offers a program called Bright Futures which is similar to Georgia's Hope Scholarship program. I also know that South Carolina has a program set up but I don't know much about that one. You can Google Bright Futures Florida and find out more about the state program.

Actually, any high school graduate from the state of Georgia with a B average or better can get free tuition to any state college or University as long as they maintain a B average there.

I think NM has the same thing, except the students need to maintain a C avg or better.

The tuition is subsidized by the proceeds of the NM lottery, and is good for any state schools.

In West Virginia there is the Promise Scholarship program, if you have a 3.0 and make a 21 on the ACT, I forget the SAT scores. You get your tuiton waived if you attend college within West Virginia. You have to then maintain a 3.0 in college each semester to keep it.
