How to: Get money to pay for college

April 6, 2021 Posted by NC Lottery at 2:05 PM
Is your high schooler graduating this year? Then throw their hat in the ring for receiving money to pay for college by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form.
Their potential for receiving an Education Lottery Scholarship depends on it.
Our friends at the College Foundation of North Carolina have arranged for you and your teen to drive right up for one-on-one help in filling out the FAFSA.   FAFSA Drive-In events are scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the following Saturdays in April:
  • April 10 (Spanish assistance will be offered)
  • April 17 (Spanish assistance will be offered)
  • April 24

In a world of curbside pickups, consider this your curbside assistance for making paying for college a little easier.

These FAFSA Drive-In events are free. Just bring your own charged device (mobile or laptop) and masked volunteers will answer questions through your car window. WiFi will be provided at each site.

As you know, the lottery supports education in a myriad ways. One of those ways is by funding scholarships to those who need it. Education Lottery Scholarships are awarded based on need, and filling out the FAFSA is what makes you eligible. Your senior could really win big this year. So, don’t miss out!

It's Want a NC Education Lottery Scholarship, not Want an. You should've learned in grade school that it's an before words beginning with a vowel and a before words beginning with a consonant.
