Your generous gift assists with providing a quality education for our students. It is now time to formalize this program to help more deserving students in Athens-Clarke County who have been accepted to a technical school or college. The StepUp Scholarship Program is being formally organized to seek donations from the entire Athens-Clarke County area to financially assist deserving students.
Your contribution helps students who meet specific criteria. Each student must have full tuition paid at a technical school, two or four- year accredited institution, have overcome severe life obstacles, be recommended by a member of the Athens-Clarke County community and write an essay explaining why they deserve this scholarship.
Your donation to Athens StepUp Scholarship Program is tax deductible. Your contribution is made to this fund through the Athens Area Community Foundation (AACF) in coordination with The College Factory, INC. which aids Athens area students, who stay in school, succeed in school and get to college and succeed in college.
Contributions (checks should be made out to AACF-ASUS) may be mailed directly to:
