SECTION 248
Establishment of probation scholarships
Executive (EXC) CHAPTER 18, ARTICLE 12
§ 248. Establishment of probation scholarships. The office, out of
moneys appropriated to it for that purpose, is authorized to grant
scholarships for graduate training in any course of study that would be
of substantial value in the field of probation at graduate schools
located within the state whose programs are registered by the regents.

Each such scholarship shall entitle the holder thereof to a sum not to
exceed four thousand dollars annually while in attendance at any of the
said schools for a period not to exceed two years of graduate
professional study.

Scholarships under this section shall be awarded only to residents of
the state of New York who hold a degree of bachelor of arts or bachelor
of science from a college or university, or the equivalent thereof.

The office, after consultation with the state probation commission,
shall recommend to the commissioner rules governing the award of such
scholarships, the publication of notices offering scholarships, the
issuance and cancellation of certificates entitling persons to the
benefits thereof, the use of such scholarships by the persons entitled
thereto, the courses that may be included under such scholarships, the
schools which may be attended under such scholarships, the rights and
duties of scholarship holders and of the schools which they attend, and
providing generally for the carrying into effect of the provisions of
this section; and may, by appropriate rule, require that holders of such
scholarships be available for employment in probation work in the state
of New York upon the completion of the training for which the
scholarship is provided. The office shall, after consultation with the
state probation commission, award such scholarships within such
established rules, and any scholarship may be revoked for cause.

Payments of money under this section may be made to the holder of the
scholarship or to the school or college attended under the scholarship,
on behalf of, and for the benefit of, the holder of the scholarship.

Payments of money shall be ordered by the comptroller upon vouchers of
the office certifying that the person named therein is entitled to
receive the sum either directly, or for his or her benefit.
