(110 ILCS 952/30)
Amount of scholarship.
To determine the scholarship amount, the Department shall consider tuition and fee charges at colleges and universities statewide and projected living expenses. Scholarship amounts for students pursuing graduate degrees in human services at a college or university shall include 75% of the weighted tuition and fees charged by public universities in this State plus the uniform living allowance used in the Monetary Award Program formula and annually reported by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission. The Department may provide that scholarships shall be on a quarterly or semi-annual basis and must be contingent upon the student's diligently pursuing mental health studies and being a student in good standing. Scholarship awards may be provided to part-time students; the amount shall be determined by applying the proportion represented by the part-time enrollment to full-time enrollment ratio to the average per term scholarship amount for a student in the same mental health degree category.
