The Georgia Highlands College Foundation has been
committed to supporting the students of northwest
Georgia and the college since 1973. The Foundation is
driven to enhance education, create opportunities for
students, faculty and staff to succeed, and expand the
horizons of Georgia Highlands College to benefit the
northwest region of Georgia.

Student success is at the heart of all we do at Georgia Highlands College. Unfortunately, for many students a lack of funds can pose a significant barrier to earning a degree – or to starting college to acquire the degree in demand in today’s economic environment. By earning a degree, these students have tremendous potential to change not only their lives, but their communities as well. Educational attainment is an economic benefit that provides a boost to the student, to our surrounding communities, and subsequent generations. It is also appealing to business and industry seeking to open an operation or expand into an area.

A student’s success is as much about their status after graduation as it is while they are attending school. In order to curtail and (as much as possible) eliminate student debt, a comprehensive effort is underway to ensure that a college education is affordable for all students and that students are provided with financial resources to stay in school and graduate in a timely manner.

To celebrate the upcoming inauguration of Donald J. Green, Ed.D., as GHC’s fourth president, we are putting extra emphasis on scholarships for the Highlands Inauguration Gala to be held the evening of September 18, 2015. Your support as a sponsor for The Highlands Gala will go a long way to provide financial support that is critical to students’ ability to enroll, progress and graduate. It should be noted, in a time when one hears about the escalating costs of college, students attending GHC can still complete their full two years, and earn an associates degree for approximately $7,300 (tuition and fees).

This is a tremendous benefit for students and their families, and your scholarship donations go a long way for a number of students!
