Legislation to reduce the scholarship amount paid to students from the Arkansas Lottery is now going to the Governor for a signature.
The bill would set scholarships in tiers. Freshmen would receive $2,000, which would increase by $1,000 each year until senior year, topping out at $5,000.
The program currently pays $4,500 per year to four-year college students.
Two-year college students would be eligible for $2,000 per year, down from $2,250.
