[February 28, 2007]
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 16.
Students whose permanent addresses lie within the 44th
District are eligible. Eight one-year tuition waivers -- for fall
2007, spring 2008 and summer 2008 -- are available to students who
will be attending state universities, with one specifically
designated for a nursing student and one for the child of a veteran.
A panel of community and education leaders will evaluate
applications and select scholarship recipients. Brady will not be
involved in the decision-making process.
