     The REACH Georgia Scholarship Program is a needs-based mentoring and scholarship program providing promising students the support to graduate from high school and achieve postsecondary success. REACH scholars will be paired with a mentor who models positive behavior and provides the student with knowledge, advice, guidance, and support related to education and beyond. Each scholar is also paired with an academic coach who monitors the student’s progress, helping them develop education and career plans, and identifying academic and social supports.
