Reach Scholarship

REACH is a state initiative to provide Georgia’s academically promising 8th grade students with the academic, social, and financial support to graduate from high school and college prepared for work.

REACH Scholars sign a contract agreeing to maintain good grades, uphold good behavior and attendance, meet with their assigned mentor twice a month, their academic coach once a month, and attend REACH activities throughout each school year until they complete high school. Their parents and guardians also sign a contract to support their Scholar’s educational pursuits. REACH Scholars who complete program requirements receive a $10,000 scholarship. The REACH Scholarship may be used at a University System of Georgia, Technical College System of Georgia, or eligible private post-secondary institution.

Catoosa County Schools Partnership Program Steering Committee oversees this program, provides mentors, and helps raise the $3,500 matching funds for each scholarship.
