(110 ILCS 205/9.13)
(from Ch. 144, par. 189.13)
To establish a program of matching grants to engineering
colleges in Illinois, for the purpose of assisting such colleges in the
purchase of engineering laboratory equipment and software, excluding
laboratory or classroom furniture. The amount granted to any engineering
college in any fiscal year shall equal $1200 for each Bachelor of Science
degree in engineering conferred by such college in the previous fiscal year.
In the event that the appropriation to the Board for funding grants under
this Section is insufficient to fund all grants approved in a given fiscal
year, all such grants shall be reduced pro rata as necessary.
The total grant to each college under this Section for each fiscal year
shall not exceed the previously unmatched amount used or earmarked by such
college after June 30, 1983, for the purpose of purchasing engineering
laboratory equipment and software, which amount may include the fair market
value of in-kind contributions of such equipment to the college, but may
not include any funds appropriated by the General Assembly for the use of
such college, or tuition, fees and assessments.
The Board shall adopt such rules and regulations as may be necessary to
accomplish the purposes of this Section.
