(from Ch. 122, par. 30-17)
Revocation of Scholarship Because of Misconduct.
If the holder of any scholarship funded in whole or in part by this
State, whether granted by the State Scholarship Commission, granted
pursuant to any of Sections 30-1 through 30-16.6 or otherwise granted by
any State supported college or university and whether used at a
State-supported institution of higher learning or at a private institution,
participates in any disorderly disturbance or course of conduct directed
against the administration or policies of such an institution using means
which are not protected by the constitution of this State or of the United
States, his scholarship is thereupon revoked and no further payments under
that scholarship may be made to him or on his behalf, notwithstanding any
other provision to the contrary.
The initial determination as to whether the means employed in a course
of conduct are not protected by the Constitution of this State or of the
United States shall be made by the chief executive officer of the
institution at which the scholarship recipient is enrolled. No revocation
shall take place until the recipient of the scholarship to be revoked is
afforded the opportunity to present evidence against revocation to the
chief executive officer or his representatives, either in person, in
writing, or by counsel of his choice.
