Lots of people win with the Tennessee Lottery ... especially students and families throughout the state.
Beginning in 2004, Lottery-funded scholarships and grants became available to Tennessee students attending public or private colleges or universities across the state. Today, more than 100,000 individuals benefit each year from Lottery-funded awards and programs.
All scholarships and grants are administered by the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation, using funds deposited into an education account by the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation.
