SCEL looks forward to hearing from students whose higher education goals are being attained or were attained with assistance from appropriations from the Education Lottery Account.

Since the start of the Lottery in 2002, South Carolina’s students have received more than 794,000 lottery-funded scholarships and grants. The categories of financial aid supported with appropriations from the Education Lottery Account include the Palmetto Fellows, LIFE, and S.C. HOPE Scholarships, as well as S.C.
