TO AMEND SECTION 59-104-20, AS AMENDED, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO THE PALMETTO FELLOWS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM, SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT A STUDENT ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE SUCH A SCHOLARSHIP WHO CHOOSES TO ATTEND AN OUT-OF-STATE INSTITUTION MAY AGAIN BECOME ELIGIBLE UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, IF HE TRANSFERS TO A PUBLIC INSTITUTION OF HIGHER LEARNING IN THIS STATE.
Amend Title To Conform
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 59-104-20 of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 2000, is further amended by adding at the end:
"Any student that, as a senior in high school, received a Palmetto Fellows Scholarship award but declined the scholarship may be eligible to reapply for the annual scholarship if he transfers to a South Carolina public senior institution of higher learning as defined in Section 59-103-5 after attending an out-of-state senior higher education institution if the following criteria are met:
(1) a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale; and
(2) a minimum of thirty credit hours earned each academic year after graduation from high school.
The annual award of these scholarship funds shall be based on the availability of funds after all eligible high school seniors and continuing Palmetto Fellows have been awarded a scholarship. The number of semesters or academic years a student attended an out-of-state institution are to be deducted from the number of semesters or academic years a student is eligible for the scholarship."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
