Description

Community service careers; tuition and fee waivers at public institutions of higher education. Requires the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (the Council) to establish and administer a community service career incentive program (the program) by which any student who is enrolled at a public institution of higher education, intends to pursue a community service career in an area of the Commonwealth in which there is a high need for professionals in such community service career, and meets certain other eligibility criteria established by the Council may apply to the Council for a renewable waiver of tuition and mandatory fees, including room and board. The bill requires each student who is granted a waiver by the Council pursuant to the program to enter into an agreement with the Council to serve in a community service career in an area of the Commonwealth in which there is a high need for professionals in such community service career for a period that is at least equal to the duration of the waiver and, in the event that he does not complete such service, to repay to the Council an amount equal to the full value of the waiver on the terms and in the manner that the Council prescribes. The bill requires each public institution of higher education to include in its catalog or equivalent publication a statement describing the waivers available pursuant to the program.
