To win a lottery prize, you’ve got to buy a ticket. If you want to see your student win an Education Lottery Scholarship, then they have to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid form.
Filling out the FAFSA isn’t any harder than learning how to play Pick 3 or Keno. And there’s a lot of help for you if you need it.
The help begins this month – all of October – with a statewide campaign called NC Countdown to College. Check it out here.
Since part of the money raised by the lottery – $41 million this year – goes to scholarships and grants, we wanted to help get the word out on how you can get your share of that.
Lottery scholarships are different than those awarded based on merit because they are awarded based on need.
If you like the odds, how’s this for a shoe-in? Students who complete the FAFSA are far more likely to attend a state university or community college.
So, don’t miss out on your chance at affordable, or even free, college. Your student’s ticket to a scholarship or grant to help pay for it begins with filling out your FAFSA.
