Zell Miller is a merit-based scholarship program available to students who have met the University System of Georgia and the Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC) residency requirements and are enrolled in an undergraduate degree seeking program.

The Zell Miller Scholarship was created in March of 2011 for Georgia’s highest performing students. Students are determined initially to be eligible for the Zell Miller Scholarship by the Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC).

Students can check their status for the Zell Miller Scholarship by checking their HOPE GPA. Students will only be awarded the Zell Miller Scholarship after KSU receives confirmation of their status from GSFC.
