Introduction: Hope is one of the most important points in people's lives, a key motivating factor in the growth and development of human capital in societies and is directly related to students' academic achievement and mental health. Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of group education on grit and educational self-efficacy of students based on Snyder's hope theory. Method: The experimental design was a pre-test-post-test with control group. The statistical population of this study included all primary school students studying in the public schools in district 3 of Kermanshah, Iran during the academic year of 2019-2020. 30 sixth-year elementary school male students were selected as a statistical sample using random cluster sampling and were placed in two experimental (15 subjects) and control (15 subjects) groups. The subjects in the experimental group were trained for 8 sessions based on Snyder's hope theory, but the control group did not receive any intervention. Morgan & Jinks' educational self-efficacy scale and Duckworth's grit scale were used to collect data. The information obtained from the questionnaires was analyzed using covariance statistical method. Results: The findings showed that group education based on Snyder's hope theory had a significant effect on grit (F =0.43) and educational self-efficacy (F =0.56) of the experimental group (P<0.05). Conclusion: Based on these findings, it can be said that group hope education is effective in increasing students' grit and educational self-efficacy, and after hope training, students' academic success can be expected.
