Could you take a look at the sentence below?

Doesn't everyone deserve a chance at a good life?

This is a title of one of TED speeches. In this sentence, can we use "to" instead of "at"?

What is the difference in meaning, and which preposition is more appropriate?

"To" doesn't make sense; "at" is correct.

I note that the original question had "change" instead of "chance", and that might have caused the OP's confusion. I further note that with the correction to "chance", this is a valid question.

    With chance, another possibility would e of - a chance of a good life - but not to, which would work with change. – WS2 Jun 20 '17 at 6:49
