Eligible students receive $1,500 per semester and the money is to be used strictly for tuition, books
    or fees applicable to the student’s approved program. The grant is sent to the school and credited to the student’s account. Once a student is accepted, he or she may re-apply for continued funds each semester as long as the student
    remains in academic good standing.
