(1) Adopt rules and regulations for the administration of this act;

(2) provide for the award of ROTC service scholarships to eligible students who qualify therefor, as determined by the selection committee, not to exceed in any academic year a total of 40 eligible students at each ROTC institution. This provision is subject to the provisions of subsection (c);

(3) provide information regarding application procedures;

(4) require any ROTC institution to promptly furnish upon request any information which relates to the administration or effect of this act.

(b) If the ROTC institution at which an eligible student who qualifies for an ROTC service scholarship is enrolled is a state educational institution, the scholarship shall provide to the student an amount not to exceed 70% of the cost of attendance at the institution for an academic year. If the ROTC institution at which an eligible student who qualifies for an ROTC service scholarship is enrolled is a municipal university, the scholarship shall provide to the student an amount not to exceed 70% of the average amount of the cost of attendance at the state educational institutions for an academic year. Payments of ROTC service scholarships shall be made pursuant to vouchers approved by the state board of regents and upon warrants of the director of accounts and reports. Payments may be made by issuance of a single warrant to each ROTC institution at which one or more eligible students are enrolled for the total amount of scholarships for all eligible students enrolled at that institution. The director of accounts and reports shall cause such warrant to be delivered to the ROTC institution at which such eligible student or students are enrolled. If an eligible student discontinues attendance before the end of any academic year, after the ROTC institution has received payment under this subsection, the institution shall pay to the state the entire amount which such eligible student would otherwise qualify to have refunded, not to exceed the amount of the payment made under the ROTC service scholarship for the academic year. All amounts paid to the state by ROTC institutions under this subsection shall be remitted to the state treasurer in accordance with the provisions of K.S.A. 75-4215, and amendments thereto. Upon receipt of each such remittance, the state treasurer shall deposit the entire amount in the state treasury to the credit of the ROTC service scholarship program fund.

(c) If all ROTC service scholarships authorized to be awarded to eligible students at each ROTC institution have not been awarded by a date established by the state board of regents, the scholarships that have not been awarded by that date may be awarded to eligible students at any ROTC institution if such students are qualified for such scholarships as determined by the appropriate selection committee. The determination to award ROTC service scholarships under this subsection to eligible students who are qualified for such scholarships shall be made by the state board of regents after consultation with the adjutant general.
