One lucky North Carolina college student will receive $5,000 to put towards their college tuition this fall.
Entries are now being accepted by NC Assist Loans.
The giveaway is open to any current or rising college student 18 or older, or the parent of a student going to a North Carolina college in the fall.
It is an alternative education loan administered by the College Foundation.
It is the first year the non-profit is offering the loan.
“Since it is March Madness, we are in the season of basketball, and basketball is huge in North Carolina and across the country now,” regional representative Amy Denton said. “We are hoping we can certainly provide an assist to students or the parent of a student.”
