Albany - Hard work and academic excellence earns 14 Georgia students a free ride to Albany State University. ASU awarded 14 Presidential Scholarships on Monday.

The students rank in the top 5% of their high school classes and have a grade point average of 3.5 or above. The scholarship covers fees, room and board, books, and additional items.

"The scholarship will allow me to focus on my studies and on enjoying my college life rather than having to get a job during college," said John Williams, Presidential Scholar Recipient. "I'm honored to be among these students."

The students must earn at least a 3.0 GPA each semester to keep the scholarship.
