Action C-1 (Undergraduate Scholarships) Detailed Analysis: The committee recommends that up to $20,000/year be provided for scholarships. This analysis focuses on the mid-range scholarship of $15,000/year. This allows the amount of the scholarship to vary relative to an institution’s tuition. Because scholarship programs provide funding for a number of years, this program will take several years to reach steady state (when the number of new students entering is equal to the number of old students graduating and no longer receiving a scholarship).
