Scholarships and grants for recipients

(1) In addition to any other scholarships or grants provided by law and subject to the availability of funds in the Department of Human Services Scholarship Account, the Department of Human Services may award tuition and fee-exempting scholarships or grants and additional funds for purchase of required books and supplies from other funds, whether from public or private sources, made available for training of recipients toward self-support to those qualified to receive welfare assistance, for enrollment at any publicly supported educational, vocational or training institution in this state.

(2) Selection of scholarship or grant recipients shall be made by county public welfare board created by ORS 411.145 (County public welfare boards), with the advice and assistance of all publicly supported educational, vocational or training institutions.

(3) Scholarships or grants shall be awarded on the basis of the recipient’s apparent ability and willingness to profit from the education or the vocational, technical, or other courses available, to the end that scholarships or grants awarded will benefit both the student and the people of this state.

(4) In order to facilitate the most effective use of funds granted under this section, the Department of Human Services may apply funds available under this section to supportive services, including but not limited to transportation and child care, for scholarship or grant recipients whenever the availability of such services has been eliminated by the exhaustion of funds in the department’s job related training program.
