Apply for a Scholarship

The Gwinnett County Public Schools Foundation scholarship process will begin January 2017. The 2017 GCPS Foundation Scholarship Catalog will be online for review by November 2016.  Please check the website at that time to download the most current (2016) common scholarship application. The GCPS Foundation awards scholarships to Gwinnett County Public School graduating seniors only.

The GCPS Foundation has proudly awarded over $250,000 in student scholarships to GCPS graduating seniors.  Scholarships range in value from $300-$6,000.  We will continue to add to the GCPS Foundation Cataloge online as scholarships become available.

2016 Scholarship Recipients


$2.9 billion. Not million. $2.9 BILLION. That’s how much free federal grant money went unclaimed by high school graduates in 2014, according to a study by NerdScholar. Wouldn’t you like for your student to claim some of that money as well as some of the many privately funded scholarships?

If the answer is yes, then you need to attend the Finding Scholarship Dollars for College program on September 8, 2016 at Gwinnett Technical College. You’ll hear from experts like Hal Wilkinson, who represents the GA Student Finance Commission, the organization that regulates the HOPE Scholarship Program. During the event, Hal will provide timely advice on how to apply for financial aid as well as give HOPE Scholarship updates. You’ll also learn how to work through the local schools and foundations, gather scholarship resources, and get tips on applying successfully.

Don’t let your student be part of the 47 percent of 2013 high school grads who didn’t even take the first step that could have earned them Pell Grant money.  Register today for this Community Foundation for Northeast Georgia free event, offered in conjunction with Gwinnett County Public Schools.
