House Bill 152: A Bill Concerning the HOPE Scholarship for Homeschool Graduates
Representatives Lunsford of the 110th District, Stephens of the 164th, Mills of the 25th, Coan of the 101st, Hembree of the 67th, and others.
This bill would permit homeschool graduates to receive a HOPE scholarship at the beginning of their freshman year in college if they scored at the 90th percentile or higher on the ACT or SAT. Currently, homeschool students are only eligible for a HOPE scholarship for the freshman year after earning 30 semester or 45 quarter hours with a 3.0 GPA. While this bill would not eliminate the discrimination against homeschool graduates, it would at least provide a means for them to receive the scholarship at the beginning of their freshman year.
