74-3285.Same; designation of scholars; award of scholarships; apportionment procedure; subsequent applications; duration of effectiveness. (a) In each academic year, to the extent that appropriations are available for the Kansas ethnic minority scholarship program and in accordance with the provisions of this act, the state board of regents may select for designation as a Kansas ethnic minority scholar and for the award of a Kansas ethnic minority scholarship any person who is qualified for such designation and award and shall renew the scholarship of each Kansas ethnic minority scholar who remains qualified for a scholarship.

(b) In selecting persons for designation as Kansas ethnic minority scholars, the state board of regents shall provide, insofar as possible and on the basis of a formulated procedure, for equitable apportionment of Kansas ethnic minority scholarships among the ethnic minority groups.  The procedure formulated by the board of regents shall take into account:  (1) The differences among applicants in level of financial need and availability of financial resources so that scholarships are targeted to those applicants having the greatest needs; (2) the proportion that the population of each ethnic minority group bears to the population of all ethnic minority groups in the state; and (3) the differences across ethnic minority groups in the proportion of members thereof who complete high school.

(c) An applicant who fails to be awarded a Kansas ethnic minority scholarship shall not be disqualified from applying therefor in a later academic year so long as all requirements for eligibility to apply for such award are met.

(d) The award or renewal of a Kansas ethnic minority scholarship shall be on an annual basis and shall be effective for one academic year unless otherwise terminated.
