The results of a state audit shows millions of dollars in 9/11 scholarships were never used by relatives of the victims.
California collected more than $15 million from selling 9/11 memorial license plates after the 2001 terrorist attacks.
15% of the revenue was supposed to go to scholarship money but a state audit showed many relatives of 9/11 victims did not know they could apply.
Margarita Fernandez with the California State Auditor's office said, "They told that they identified individuals and they let them know about it but this wasn't done until April of 2005, and at that point they only had 3 months left to apply for this."
Several lawmakers are reviewing the scholarship fund in hopes of making sure any unclaimed money reaches anyone who was eligible to receive it.
