CHAPTER 186

AN ACT TO APPROPRIATE FUNDS TO PROVIDE AID TO NEEDY STUDENTS AT UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE.

WHEREAS, it is the belief of the General Assembly that in a democracy persons of all economic levels should have an opportunity to obtain a college education, and

WHEREAS, recognition is made of the need in the State for more highly trained personnel in order to advance the economy and culture of the State, and

WHEREAS, the present aid opportunities, in the form of scholarships, grants or employment, are not sufficiently great to guarantee that persons of varying aptitude and academic record can obtain the necessary assistance to meet the average cost per school year at the University of Delaware, and

WHEREAS, the 119th General Assembly provided for such a program by enacting the "Delaware Right to Education Law" Sections 5521 et seq. Title 14, Delaware Code, and

WHEREAS, no funds have been appropriated to implement the "Delaware Right to Education Law,"

NOW THEREFORE,

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. The amount of $57,000.00 is appropriated to the University of Delaware for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1961 to carry out the purpose of the "Delaware Right to Education Law".

Section 2. This act shall be known as a supplementary appropriation and the funds appropriated shall be paid out of the General Fund of the State.

Section 3. Any Act or Acts inconsistent with any provision of this Act are repealed to the extent of any such inconsistency.

Approved September 6, 1961.
