Re: “Beebe announces more lottery money

Maybe Beebe can spend some of his campaign money to fund the rest of the applicants that qualified but aren't receiving scholarships. I bet that would buy some votes better than anything would!!

Re: “Beebe announces more lottery money

I have been reading about all this and from what I understand there is still money left over about ,20m maybe, in the current achiever bank, and because of the narrow rules to be considered a current achiever a large amount of those people got pushed in to the nontraditional and flooded that pool of applicants. And this is why I am not getting a scholorship. Why can't they just pull some of that money left over frmo the current achievers to satisfy the remaining qualified applicants. Nontraditional students are the ones that really need this scholorship anyway. we are often the ones that dont really qualify for much aid or help and most of us are not on the parents pocketbook anymore. I am really disappointed! I worked so hard for the last year and a half to get into nursing school at the UofA starting this fall in the nursing program. I don't qualify for anything but financial aid that I will have to pay back. I was counting on this being a way to fund college a little that I would not have to worry about.Student loans are already piling up, I pay my taxes, I work and I contribute to our great state. I was looking forward to a little help with my college but I guess I was wrong.... Maybe something will happen in the next few days and things will change and the legislator will do what they need to do to full fill there promise. One can hope right!!

I will say this when I called my state rep Jim House, he was very diligent and getting a hold of someone at ADE and I spoke to someone that day. I was very happy to know our local state rep is so helpful. Thank you Jim.
