The "Hope Scholarship" tax credit helps make the first two years of college or vocational school universally available. Students can receive a 100% tax credit for the first $1,000 of tuition and required fees, and a 50% credit on the second $1,000. This credit is available for tuition, and required fees minus grants, scholarships, and other tax-free required assistance and will be available for payments made after December 31, 1997 for college enrollment that date.
This tax credit is targeted to adults who want to go back to school, change careers, take a course or two to upgrade their skills, and to college juniors, seniors, graduates, and professional degree students. This tax credit is available for tuition and required fees minus grants, scholarships and other tax-free educational assistance.
