Honorable College Park Mayor Jack P. Longino Scholarship
Deadline to Submit Application: June 30, 2021

In November of 2018, the City of College Park hosted the Mayor’s Ball at the Georgia International Convention Center in the City of College Park. The event was open for all to attend. The Honorable Mayor Jack P. Longino sought to support high school students in College Park who did not achieve a 3.0 grade point average (GPA) or higher, as required to qualify for the Georgia HOPE Scholarship.  

With that in mind, Mayor Longino initiated fundraising efforts to provide assistance for students who ranked just shy of the Georgia HOPE Scholarship criteria. Thus, the Honorable College Park Mayor Jack Longino Scholarship fund was created.
By assisting students with scholarship funding, College Park provides supplemental financial assistance for families that otherwise may not have the resources.  Graduating seniors, living in the City of College Park, who do not meet the criteria for the Georgia HOPE program at graduation, can apply for the College Park Mayor Jack Longino Scholarship if they meet the eligibility requirements below.
