A brief description of notable policies or programs to make the institution accessible and affordable to low-income students:
The Georgia Tech Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid work hard to make sure all qualified students have an opportunity to afford attending Georgia Tech. Over 30 scholarships funded by different sources are awarded based upon financial need and scholastic eligibility.

The G. Wayne Clough Georgia Tech Promise Program offers aid to Georgia students who come from a family with an income of less than $33,000 and who are seeking their first undergraduate degree. The idea behind this program is to close the gap between other forms of financial aid to ensure that these students can cover all the costs of college.

The Goizueta Scholarship was established to help out qualified Hispanic students that demonstrate financial need. Georgia Tech also offers grants to students demonstrating a high level of financial need. Unlike some scholarships, this is purely based on financial need with the assumption that a student has merit if they are already accepted to Tech.
