Those include college scholarships and grants, after-school programs for children and an initiative to make schools more energy efficient.

In all, the lottery has provided more than $3 billion for education since ticket sales began a decade ago. It has funded more than 800,000 grants or scholarships since 2004. More than 100,000 grants or scholarships were awarded just in the past academic year.
