Tennessee's HOPE scholarship program gave out fewer grants in its first year than state officials had expected.
Some 30,000 Tennessee students attending college in-state this fall received the lottery-funded scholarships.
But at one point it was projected that as many as 45,000 students would receive grants from the new scholarship program.
Officials said the estimate was too high because it relied on inaccurate federal government projections of the number of high school graduates in the state.
Also, some people still don't know about the scholarships.
