REACH Georgia

The REACH Georgia program is a state-wide initiative that financially supports the preparation of potential scholars at the middle school level to attend college. Coordinators continue to mentor REACH Georgia scholars throughout their high school tenure and assist them as they begin to identify their post-secondary school of choice. REACH Georgia is grateful to partners in higher education for their support in helping their scholars with a smooth transition into college and assisting them with their educational goals.

As a campus partner, the department of Strategic Outreach and Diversity Initiatives (SODI), Office of Diversity and Inclusion provides resources and co-curricular programming that enhances student success for Reach Georgia scholars.  Additionally, SODI collaborates with campus partners and the program’s stakeholders to assure the persistence of REACH Georgia scholars pursuing their undergraduate degree from Kennesaw State University.
