HF 2306: An Act establishing the comprehensive transition and postsecondary program scholarship program. This legislation directs the Iowa College Student Aid Commission to create a scholarship program to support individuals with intellectual, development or learning disabilities. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and enrolled in an Iowa-based comprehensive transition and postsecondary program (CTP) approved by the U.S. Department of Education. The Iowa College Student Aid Commission will administer the program and establish evaluation criteria for scholarship applications. Iowa applicants will receive priority in scholarship awardee selection. The legislation also authorizes a new CTP scholarship fund, which the Iowa College Student Aid Commission will also administer. The fund will retain unused scholarship money at the end of each cycle to support students in future years. The Iowa General Assembly will determine funding levels for the scholarship program.
