110 ILCS 947/52
Amends the Higher Education Student Assistance Act. Makes
changes in the definition of "qualified student" for the purposes of
the Minority Teachers of Illinois scholarship program. Provides that
the Commission shall set a goal to award at least 30% of the Minority
Teachers of Illinois scholarships in each fiscal year to qualified
male minority applicants (rather than requiring that 30% of these
scholarships be awarded to qualified male minority applicants).
Deletes the provision requiring that the teaching obligation required
of recipients of these scholarships be completed at a school at which
no less than 30% of the enrolled students are minority students.
Provides that the David A. DeBolt Teacher Shortage scholarships may be
used to assist applicants seeking alternative teacher certification.
Provides that the State Board of Education shall notify the Illinois
Student Assistance Commission as to which disciplines are considered
teacher shortage disciplines. Provides that the interest rate on
repayment on the amount of a scholarship for failure to fulfill the
teaching obligation is 5%. Effective July 1, 2001.
