HB 1698 -- Bright Flight Scholarships

Sponsor:  Zweifel

This bill changes the laws regarding the Higher Education
Academic Scholarship Program, known as Bright Flight, to require
recipients to maintain a cumulative 3.0 grade point average to be
eligible for renewed awards.  The scholarship amount is increased
beginning in Fiscal Year 2011 from $3,000 to the amount of
tuition, but in no case more than the average amount of tuition
at a public four-year institution as specified by the Higher
Education Student Funding Act.  The award for students achieving
at the fourth and fifth percentile, also beginning in Fiscal Year
2011, is increased to one-half of the award for students
achieving at the first three percentiles.
