Let the scholarship money flow

Posted By on Wed, Feb 3, 2010 at 4:38 PM

The Arkansas Lottery Commission Legislative Oversight Committee set lottery scholarship amounts at $5,000 for full-time students at four-year institutions and $2,500 for full-time students at two-year schools.  The move has been in the works for some time now.  The figure was determined by a working group (made up of legislators on the committee) with input from the governor's office.  The language to officially set the scholarship amounts will be included in the committee's forthcoming bill, along with other minor changes, and will be voted on by legislators in the upcoming fiscal session.
