REACH Scholarship


REACH Scholar Program

The Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen (REACH) Georgia Program is a needs-based scholarship designed to promote academic success and expand access to higher education. As a part of the program, students sign contracts to maintain a certain grade point average and meet with a volunteer mentor and academic coach until they graduate from high school. Parents or guardians sign contracts to support their children through this process. When these scholars graduate from high school, they will receive up to a $10,000 scholarship - $2,500 each year for up to four years to be used at a HOPE-eligible Georgia two or four-year college or Georgia Technical School. Many colleges are matching this scholarship and some are double matching the scholarship, thus providing additional financial support for their college education. 


The REACH Scholarship program is a public/private partnership with some of the funding from the state level, while the remainder is contributed by local community support. Dodge County School is seeking additional business partners for the program. If interested, please contact REACH Coordinator, Karen Fordham at or at 478-374-3783 ext. 313.

Thank you to our current REACH sponsors!
