Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the University of Illinois Act in a Section concerning scholarships for the children of veterans. Adds as periods of hostilities for which a county may award a scholarship (i) any time during the siege of Beirut between June 14, 1982 and February 26, 1984 and (ii) any time during the Grenada Conflict between October 25, 1983 and December 15, 1983. Effective immediately.
| ||Fiscal Note (Illinois Student Assistance Commission)|
| ||HB 3404 makes two additional tuition waivers available for the University of Illinois from each of the State's 102 counties, for a total of 204 potential additional waivers annually. Assuming an average tuition paid by University of Illinois students of around $15,000, the bill could lead to waivers worth approximately $3 million in the first year if the program is fully utilized. Notably, this represents an estimate for Year One, and the impact could be larger in each year through Year Four as an additional cohort of up to 204 students could be added annually. Additionally, as tuition and fees rise, the amount waived per recipient will increase.
