Aspire and Base Hope Lottery Scholarship Recipients

6-Year Graduation Rates, Fall 2006 Cohort

Lottery scholarship recipients who receive the Aspire supplement (students from families with an adjusted gross income of $36,000 or less) at 4-year institutions have much higher 6-year graduation rates than Aspire supplement recipients at Community Colleges. This pattern also holds true for recipients of the base HOPE Scholarship.
