[JAN. 21, 2005]  SPRINGFIELD -- Students who will be attending state universities in Illinois may submit applications for the General Assembly Scholarship program to the office of state Sen. Bill Brady, R-Bloomington, through March 19.

Students whose permanent addresses lie within the 44th District are eligible. Eight one-year tuition waivers -- for fall 2005 and spring 2006 (excluding summer 2006) -- are available to students who will be attending state universities, with one specifically designated for a nursing student attending Illinois State University.

The remaining eight summer 2006 portions of the scholarship are available for teachers who are continuing their education at a state-funded school.

A panel of community and education leaders will evaluate applications and select scholarship recipients. Brady will not be involved in the decision-making process.
