Zell Miller Scholarship is a merit-based award available to Georgia residents, similar to the HOPE Scholarship, but with more stringent academic requirements and a higher level of tuition assistance. A Zell Miller Scholarship recipient must graduate from high school with a minimum 3.7 HOPE Calculated (approved core courses) grade point average combined and earned 4 credits of academic rigor, with a minimum SAT score of 1,200 on the math and reading portions or a minimum composite ACT score of 26 in single national test administration. Students must maintain a minimum 3.3 cumulative postsecondary grade point average to remain eligible. Students are provided full-tuition assistance while pursuing an undergraduate degree and they must attend an eligible college or university in Georgia. A seven-year limit exists for students first receiving the Zell Miller Scholarship.
