74-32,229.Same; establishment of program; amount and duration of awards. (a) There is hereby established the military service scholarship program. A scholarship may be awarded under the program to any qualified student and may be renewed for each such student who remains qualified for the scholarship. Determination of the students qualified for such scholarships shall be made by the executive officer. Scholarships shall be awarded on a priority basis to qualified applicants who have the greatest financial need. When determining financial need, the executive officer shall take into consideration federal military educational assistance received by a qualified student, if any.

(b) Within the limitations of appropriations therefor, the number of scholarships awarded and the amount awarded to each applicant shall be determined by the executive officer. The amount awarded shall be specified in the agreement. The amount awarded may vary depending upon the number of hours and the program in which the applicant is enrolled. A scholarship awarded under the program shall provide for payment to a qualified student of an amount not to exceed the amount of the fees and tuition for an academic year at the postsecondary educational institution in which the qualified student is enrolled. Except as provided by this subsection, a qualified student may be awarded a scholarship for not more than four academic years of undergraduate study. If the course of instruction requires a fifth year of undergraduate study, a scholarship may be awarded for the duration of the course of instruction.

(c) If a student is not enrolled on a full-time basis, a student shall complete the course of study within the time period specified in the agreement and shall receive a proportionate amount of the scholarship allowed under subsection (b) based upon the number of hours enrolled in an academic period, and computed as a fraction of the total number of credit hours required for full-time enrollment.
