ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Students wanting to further their education are getting a little help from Governor Nathan Deal.

Deal is proposing a new Zell Miller Scholarship within the HOPE grant program. It would provide full tuition for technical college students with a 3.5 GPA and low-interest loans and funds for books and supplies for high school students in dual enrollment programs.

Albany Tech President Dr. Anthony Parker believes it's a good plan. President Parker says "Our state and our communities can give employers, manufacturers, retailers, people in distribution and warehouse in all our critical industries employees that are going to be very well educated because the state had the foresight to put in a program, a world class program for workforce development and higher education."

For more information on the HOPE grant program, the requirements and what areas it covers go to www.tcsghopeinfo.com
