Short description: 
IL CLIMB SCHOLARSHIP                                                       

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates  the   College   Level   Illinois   Merit-Based   (CLIMB)      
   Scholarship  Act to be administered by the Illinois Student Assistance      
   Commission.  Provides for the  award,  beginning  with  the  2000-2001      
   academic  year,  of undergraduate scholarship awards for use at public      
   institutions of higher education located in the State.  Provides  that      
   the  awards  may  be  for  up  to  2 years if used at public community      
   colleges or for up to 4 years if used at other public institutions  of      
   higher  education.  Establishes criteria for the initial award and for      
   renewal  of  the  scholarships,  including  the  requirements  that  a      
   recipient earn a cumulative B average in core academic  courses  while      
   in  high school and, while in college, maintain a cumulative B average      
   in order to renew the award.  Provides that the  annual  amount  of  a      
   scholarship  shall be equal to the costs of tuition and mandatory fees      
   for a full-time undergraduate student at  the  public  institution  of      
   higher  education  at  which the scholarship recipient is enrolled (or      
   for an amount not exceeding one-half that cost for a part-time student      
   so enrolled).  Requires CLIMB  scholarship  applicants  to  apply  for      
   other  State  and federal financial assistance, and reduces the amount      
   of  a  CLIMB  scholarship  by  the  amount  of  such  other  financial      
   assistance that the applicant receives.  Effective January 1, 2000.
