South Carolina H 5150: General Appropriations Bill for Fiscal Year 2022-23
This bill, passed in 2022, establishes scholarships (College Transition Program Scholarship) for students with intellectual disability (ID) attending a CTP inclusive postsecondary program. In-state students may receive up to $5,000/semester in scholarship money, regardless of financial need. Similar to prior years, the state budget also includes needs-based funds for students with ID.
Also new for 2022, if there are unexpected funds, The South Carolina Inclusive Post-Secondary Education Consortium may receive up to $250,000. Those funds may be used to promote better awareness of CTP programs statewide as an option for youth with intellectual disabilities, through dedicated support for activities such as, student recruitment, development and maintenance of a consortium website and associated materials, and the provision of strategic informational events for prospective students and families across the state.
Funding: Section 3- H660 Lottery Expenditure Account - $4,105,597
