Note that DPI is in the process of changing the wording on Chapter PI 22 to include “three
scholarships per year” instead of currently “one scholarship per summer, fall and spring
semester”. This process may or may not be completed by July 1, 2009. Until this process has
been finalized, the current rule will remain in place. Colleges will be notified when the changes
Because of the popularity and high level of student interest in the program, all institutions are
encouraged to keep scholarship tuition costs down in order to provide an opportunity for more
students to participate. The Department of Public Instruction is committed and pleased to work
as a partner with school districts and post secondary institutions across the state to increase the
number of precollege participants. It is imperative that all colleges and universities receiving
DPI Precollege Scholarship funding adhere to the scholarship guidelines. Failure to do so may
result in loss of funds to your institution.
