3 p.m. – Senate File 2102:
Senate File 2102 was proposed by Sen. Jim Carlin. It’s an act relating to applicant priority and grant award amounts under the Teach Iowa Scholar program.
The bill modifies the Teach Iowa Scholar program to give first priority to applicants who are minority persons, with subsequent priority to residents of Iowa, and raises the annual grant limitation from $4,000 to $7,500 and the total grant limitation over a five-year period from $20,000 to $37,500.
Currently, priority is given to residents of Iowa.
