    Georgia GOAL Scholarship

    In 2008, Georgia’s elected officials had the remarkable vision to pass the Education Expense Credit law to provide families in Georgia with access to better educational opportunities for their children. Their legislative leadership resulted in what has been described as the nation’s best education expense credit law. Since inception, the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program has been leading the way in implementing this important legislation through their ethical, transparent and proven approach.

    The Georgia GOAL Scholarship is available to students entering EDS in prekindergarten through 8th grade and have transferred from a Georgia public school. For the year 2022-23, EDS has awarded over $290,000 to students to date from GA GOAL.
