AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation  to  World  trade  center
  memorial scholarships

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subparagraph 4 of paragraph (a) of subdivision 2 of section
668-d of the education law, as added by chapter 176 of the laws of 2002,
is amended to read as follows:
  (4) "Non-tuition cost of attendance", as  used  in  this  subdivision,
shall  mean:  (i)  the actual amount charged by the institution for room
and board, and (ii) an allowance for transportation, books and  supplies
as  determined  by  the president and as approved by the director of the
budget, provided that such determination shall be  made  no  later  than
December  first of each year for use in the succeeding academic year. In
the event a student does not incur room or board charges at the institu-
tion, "non-tuition cost of attendance" shall mean an allowance for  room
and board as determined by the president and approved by the director of
the  budget.  A STUDENT SHALL NOT BE REQUIRED, AS A CONDITION OF RECEIV-
ING THE NON-TUITION COST OF ATTENDANCE, TO APPLY FOR ON-CAMPUS  HOUSING,
NOR  SHALL THE AMOUNT OF NON-TUITION COST OF ATTENDANCE DECREASE BECAUSE
THE STUDENT DOES NOT APPLY FOR OR RECEIVE ON-CAMPUS  HOUSING;  PROVIDED,
HOWEVER  THAT  THE  AMOUNT  OF  NON-TUITION  COST  OF  ATTENDANCE MAY BE
DECREASED FOR A STUDENT WHO DOES NOT LIVE IN ON-CAMPUS HOUSING  IF  SUCH
STUDENT'S PARENT OR PARENTS RESIDE WITHIN REASONABLE COMMUTING DISTANCE,
OR  IF  THEIR  OFF-CAMPUS  RESIDENCE  IS  OWNED IN WHOLE OR IN PART BY A
DIRECT RELATION INCLUDING A PARENT, GRANDPARENT, AUNT, UNCLE, SIBLING OR
COUSIN. In determining allowances pursuant  to  this  subparagraph,  the
president may take into consideration the allowances provided for in the
Pell grant program.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
