Summary

The purpose of this bill is to create a new scholarship available to all West Virginians upon graduation from high school that remain in West Virginia to pursue an associate or bachelor’s degree of $10,000 per year. The only academic requirement is that the person have a 2.0 GPA, and graduate in no more than four years for an undergraduate degree or two and a half years for an associate degree; if the recipient, after graduation, stays and has full-time employment in West Virginia, repayment is forgiven on a year-to-year basis; if the person does not graduate or leaves the state after graduation, or fails to get a full-time job, the scholarships are converted to student loans and must be repaid.
