Lottery Scholarship Funding

The North Carolina Education Lottery in the most recent school year (2007-2008) provided scholarships 29,492 students. The total of the scholarships was over $35 million dollars. This year (2008-09) we project even more recipients and more dollars awarded. Students apply for the Education Lottery Scholarship, along with other North Carolina need based aid programs, simply by filing the "Free Application for Federal Student Aid" (FAFSA) and listing an eligible North Carolina college or university. No separate application is required. Scholarships represent about 10% of total lottery funding for education in North Carolina.
