Oglethorpe University is proud to partner with Achieve Atlanta, a nonprofit organization working to dramatically increase the number of Atlanta Public Schools students who graduate college. Oglethorpe University is among Achieve Atlanta’s first College Success partners, which host targeted programs to ensure the scholars thrive on campus and graduate. For students eligible for the 4-year college scholarship, Achieve Atlanta will award $5,000 per year.

Interested students should:

  1. Apply for admission to Oglethorpe University
  2. Apply for the Achieve Atlanta scholarship

Oglethorpe University students who are awarded the Achieve Atlanta scholarship receive mentoring and academic support from their first day at OU until they graduate.
