ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech will begin offering four-year scholarships to valedictorians and salutatorians from Atlanta Public Schools.

The school announced the initiative Thursday and Atlanta schools officials say the program is meant to increase exposure and access for the city’s most prepared students.

Students must complete Georgia Tech’s prerequisite coursework and admission process. Students who qualify may begin classes in summer 2015.

The program was announced at Booker T. Washington High School and Georgia Tech President Bud Peterson tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (https://on-ajc.com/1y9ZhdO ) the initiative is supported by the Georgia Tech Promise Program, the state’s Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen program and other state and federal financial aid sources.
