SUBCHAPTER HPROVISIONS FOR THE LICENSE PLATE INSIGNIA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
RULE §22.145Award Amounts and Uses

(a) Funding. No awards may be made by an institution in excess of the amount of money on balance at the State Comptroller's Office for that institution, generated through the sale of special license plates bearing the institution's insignia.

  (1) The License Plate Insignia Scholarship Program is funded through funds paid to the department for the purchase of automobile license plates bearing the insignia of Texas colleges and universities. The amount of money available for scholarships to students at each institution will depend on the number of license plates purchased with that school's insignia.

  (2) Funds for license plates bearing the insignia of public senior colleges and universities will be held on deposit by the State Comptroller's Office, for the institutions to draw down as needed. Funds for license plates bearing the insignia of other public, private and independent institutions will be deposited in the State Treasury to the credit of the Board, which in turn will allocate the funds to the relevant institutions.

(b) Award Amount. No award received through this program may exceed a student's financial need.

(c) Uses. Institutions may only use funds generated through the sale of license plates under Texas Transportation Code, §504.615, to issue scholarships to students with financial need or to issue need-based grants through the Texas Public Educational Grant Program, authorized in Texas Education Code, §§56.031 - 56.039.

(d) Over Awards. If, at a time after an award has been offered by the institution and accepted by the student, the student receives assistance that was not taken into account in the student's estimate of financial need, so that the resulting sum of assistance exceeds the student's financial need, the institution is not required to adjust the award under this program unless the sum of the excess resources is greater than $300.
