Get tips on how to pay for college

February 6, 2023 Posted by NC Lottery at 9:59 AM

We know that helping your high school senior apply to and pay for college, and all that comes with that, can be overwhelming.

We’d like to share with you an opportunity to better understand your options for making college more affordable!

For example, did you know that your lottery contributes more than $41 million, annually, toward Education Lottery Scholarships and grants?

Students are eligible for one when they fill out their Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

For some guidance on financial aid, join our friends at the College Foundation of North Carolina from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.

For Financial Aid Awareness Month in February, they launched a series of webinars called How to Pay for College to help students and their families with this process.

In this week’s webinar, experts who lead scholarship programs cover important points on how to pay for college.

These scholarships have come in handy for some of our friends like Sarah, Tiana, and Caraline.

So, maybe carve out some time to join in on this week’s “Ask the Experts” panel.
