West Virginia Scholarship Program. Annual Report, 1973-1974.
West Virginia State Legislature, Charleston.
The West Virginia Scholarship Program was established in 1968 to guarantee, within the limits of appropriations made by the legislature, that the most able and needy students from all sectors of the state be given the opportunity to continue their program of self-improvement at approved institutions of higher education located in the state. Appropriations for the first six years of the program have totaled $1,675,000. An appropriation of $25,000 for the 1968-69 academic year provided monetary awards to 173 students. In considerable contrast, the 1973-74 appropriation of $500,000 will provide financial assistance to approximately 1,575 students. Presented in this annual report is the Program Advisory Council of the scholarship program; colleges and universities participating in the scholarship programs; history and operation of the West Virginia Scholarship Programs; and a description of the students assisted by the West Virginia Scholarship Programs (geographic distribution, colleges attended, additional aid received and college-level academic performance). Tables accompany the text. (Author/PG)
