Subchapter II. Aid to Needy Delaware Students

There is established a program to provide financial aid to needy Delaware residents who are enrolled or selected as undergraduate students at the University of Delaware to the end that no resident of this State shall be denied an opportunity for a college education because of financial need.

14 Del. C. 1953, § 5520; 51 Del. Laws, c. 86, § 1; 59 Del. Laws, c. 325, § 1.;

The aid program shall be administered by the officer of the University of Delaware who is designated by the President as responsible for the total University financial aid program.

14 Del. C. 1953, § 5521; 51 Del. Laws, c. 86, § 1.;

Each applicant for aid shall provide on forms supplied by the University, biographical information, a financial budget and a parents' financial statement. Financial grants shall not be for any fixed amount per student and grants shall be made available to students who are qualified to matriculate or to continue their courses of study solely upon the basis of economic need. All grants shall be for 1 year or for 1 semester and may be renewed if a qualified student reapplies in the same manner required for an initial request for assistance.

14 Del. C. 1953, § 5522; 51 Del. Laws, c. 86, § 1.;

In the administration of §§ 5520-5524 of this title no discrimination shall be made on the basis of field of study, county residence, sex, campus residence or commutation. As long as funds are available to meet the needs of all qualified students, no preference shall be given to 1 student over another because of superior ability or academic accomplishment.

14 Del. C. 1953, § 5523; 51 Del. Laws, c. 86, § 1.;

Within a reasonable time after the end of each fiscal year the University officer responsible for the administration of §§ 5520-5524 of this title shall submit through the appropriate University channels a written report to the General Assembly in which shall be outlined the number of grants given, the amount received by each student and an analysis of whether the aim of §§ 5520-5524 of this title to eliminate economic need as a bar to an education at the University of Delaware has been accomplished.
