BILL NUMBER:S1084

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the education law, in relation to prohibiting on campus
residency as a requirement for scholarships, grants and awards offered
by the state university of New York

PURPOSE:
To allow students who commute to SUNY schools to be eligible
for all scholarships, grants and awards that are offered by SUNY.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Adds a new section 141 to the education law
which prohibits on campus residency as a requirement for
scholarships, grants and awards offered by SUNY except where such
scholarship, grant, award or assistance is specifically designated
for on-campus house or board. However, the bill would not prohibit
SUNY schools from limiting scholarships to New York State residents.

JUSTIFICATION:
Currently students who commute to SUNY schools are not
eligible for some scholarships, grants and awards because they don't
live on campus. Students who are commuting deserve equal
consideration for scholarships, grants and awards.

BILL HISTORY:
S.4521A of 2009-10; Referred to Education
S.258A of 2011-12; Referred to Higher Education

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on July 1, 2013.
