Georgia Public Safety Memorial Grant

The Georgia Public Safety Memorial (GSPSM) Grant program provides non-repayable grants to eligible Georgia residents who are dependent children of Georgia law enforcement officers, prison guards, firefighters, or emergency medical technicians who were permanently disabled or killed in the line of duty. The amount of the award covers the cost of attendance minus any other financial aid received by the student. The student applicant must be the natural or adopted child of a public safety officer who meets the eligibility requirements of the Georgia Student Finance Commission and the Georgia Board of Public Safety on the date of the accident or event from which death or permanent disability resulted.

The GPSM Grant is payable during the normal academic year, and also during the summer term. Recipients are eligible for a maximum of 12 quarters of attendance.
