      Thousands receive lottery scholarships

      More than 10,000 college students received lottery scholarships Monday.

      But how they're getting the funds is different this year. This spring the legislature created a graduated scale.

      It starts with $2,000 for the freshman year, and then increases each year until it tops off at $5,000 for seniors.

      There's still time to apply for a lottery scholarship. The deadline is June 1st.
