I am often asked about how the Kentucky Lottery funds are used in our state. The money raised has provided $2 billion in scholarship and grants for our students in Kentucky.
In my Senate District for the fiscal year of 2013, 4176 grants and scholarships that were worth $7,289,377 were awarded to our students. By counties, in my district it is evident that thousands of students are recipients of major funds for higher education.
• Casey County: 537 grants and scholarships worth $888,230
